Uganda: Police Vow to Stay Till Monitor Produces Letter

The Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura has said Police will remain at the Monitor Publications premises until the letter attributed to Gen. David Sejusa aka Tinyefuza is produced.

Kayihura said the Police was also investigating the issuance of a court order directing the Police to vacate the premises.

"Police received the report. However, we discovered that the magistrate who issued the order to search was the same person who issued the order to vacate," Kayihura stated.

"This is irregular, and we are challenging the action in court," he asserted.

Both the Monitor head offices in Namuwongo and Red Pepper offices in Namanve remain closed, with the Police deployed around the premises.

He appealed to the scribes to hand over the controversial letter.

The Police insist that the letter and other related documents are to help them investigate the alleged offences.
