They include: Regional CID Officer Wamala, SP. Wanyama Wilber Ostin, DPC Kasanda ASP Owellano Daincl, OC CID Kasanda ASP Beitcra Peter and In charge CID Records Wamala Sgt Azale.
The charges stem from atrocities committed by a group of people attached to the businessman.

Mr Abid and his co-accused were remanded until May 8 when they will return to court for further mention of the case.
