Confidential briefing by the director Security bank of Uganda to governor bank of Uganda about the stealing of vital documents by Justine Bagyenda the former executive director at bank of Uganda has leaked, SpyReports writes.
This is contained in a confidential letter written by Milton Orech Opio the director security to his boss Emmanuel Mutebile dated May 10.2018.
According to Opio, on March 13 2018, the department of security received confidential information that documents were suspected to have been removed from office of the executive director supervision over a period of time.
He briefed the governor that the department carried out investigations and reviewed CCTV footages and confirmed that documents were actually ferried from the premises.
“They were carried out of office and loaded into her car by body guard and driver on Sunday February 11, 2018 at 4.20pm without being checked at the security check point .She was in the office during the time they were taking out the bags”.
Opio adds that he wrote to the directorate of criminal intelligence of police to help in the investigations and procure a search warrant from court to search her residence for possible recovery of the bank documents stolen from bank which she sneaked out of the bank without going through screening procedures of the bank.
He noted that shortly after Bagyenda returned from south Africa on march 14 2018, two pieces of luggage was carried from her car to her office by her body guard and driver in the evening and the contents of the luggage were not screened or checked. By the time the bags were sneaked back, Bagyenda was already in the office.
The controversial director security notes that the security search was not conducted at Bagyenda’s home after the planned was leaked to her.
He further briefed the governor that Bagyenda intimidated staff as she ferried documents out of the banks to avoid being checked.
Her driver Job Turyahebwa and body guard Ms Juliet Adikito have since been handed over to police criminal investigations for investigation for telling lies to Parliament’s Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises which is probing the bank’s top officials over the controversial sale of commercial banks.
Bagyenda who ran out of the country is also wanted by the same committee to come and explain where she was taking the documents suspected to have been containing vital information about the sale of former banks which could have been used by the committee to pin her.
