Today morning High Court Judge Elubu Micheal has reviewed Dr.Kizza Besigye’s bail from UGX 30 Million to UGX 3 Million.
Following his arrest in downtown in Kampala while demonstrating against Skyrocketing in commodities.
It should be remembered a few weeks ago, grade one Magistrate ,Sienna Owomugisha ordered Besigye to Pay bail of 30 millions in cash ,and his sureties bonded at 70 millions which Besigye refused to do and taken back to cells.
He later instructed his lawyers ,led by Erias Lukwago , to appeal the decision of the grade one Magistrate .
In his ruling this morning, Judge Elubu observed that the amount of Shs 30 million set by Buganda Road Court as bail was harsh and excessive given the case at hand.
“Taking all circumstances of the case into consideration, it is my considered opinion that the learned trial magistrate exercised her discretion with a material irregularity when she set the bail condition at Shs30 million,” the judge said.
