How Military Bowed Out of Bobi Treason Case

Military General Court martial sitting in Gulu barracks has this morning released Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine .
According to a correspondence written by the Director of public prosecution Mike Chibita to the judge advocate general court martial he advised that Kyagulanyi should be added to the charge sheet of other 33 suspects currently facing trial in civil courts.
Chibita added that in his understanding the two cases originate from the same set of facts adding that it would amount to double jeopardy if Bobi Wine is tried in two separate courts over cases that originate from the same facts.
“Please consider letting hon Sentamu face trial in the high court rather than before the court martial.” Chibita said.
Today Court headed by general military court martial Chairman Gen Andrew Gutti dropped all charges related to illegal possession of fire arms which he described as “unfair.”
He was however, picked up immediately and taken to the Gulu Chief Magistrates Court, where he was to be charged with Treason along with his colleagues
