DPC Kirumira released-Journalists beaten

The police disciplinary court has finally been released embattled Buyende DPC on bail.

Kirumira who is accused of a number of offences related to torture, corruption and unnecessary exercise of authority was previously given stringent terms including presenting a police officer above his rank.
He would later storm out of the court protesting against unfair terms.

On Thursday, Kirumira who is at the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police presented Assistant Commissioner of Police Sam Omara to stand as his surety.

The embattled police officer was later released on bail however with stringent terms.

He was asked to report to the Professional Standards Unit everyday before being stopped from speaking to the media and posting on social media about police issues.

Before court sat to hear Kirumira’s case, Journalists were beaten in a bid to stop them from covering court proceedings.

The rest were locked out of the court sitting. Kirumira’s lawyer Kiwanuka Abdallah was also refused from entering court by police.

Kiwanuka later said that even though lawyers are not supposed to represent accused officers in the police court, he wanted to sit and listen in to the proceedings because they are going to a higher court to challenge some things that the police court is doing, and listening in would have helped him get the evidence he needed.
