The High Court has issued a directive to Police and the army ordering them to vacate the home of former presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in Magere.
This followed his undefined detention at his home in Magere after 2021 General Elections, that has now lasted three weeks.
The High court also advised the state to present evidence of Bobi Wine being a danger to society and arrest him, take him to an authorized detention centre and later produce him in court otherwise his continued detention at his home with no reason is illegal and an infringement on his personal liberties.
“These are all serious allegations of grave offences and it would be proper to follow the due process of the law in regards all the allegations made against the applicant. The due process has been defined as conducting criminal proceedings against the applicant.”
The Police has however denied that Kyagulanyi isunder house arrest.
Earlier, Kyagulanyi’s lawyers led by Anthony Wameli filed an application before High Court Civil Division saying, their client and his wife have been placed under illegal detention at their home by security personnel comprised of UPDF and police since the election day on 14th November.
