Ugandan Police Tribunal Drops Torture Charges Against Officer

The case against controversial former district police commander Muhammad Kirumira took yet another twist when the prosecution at a police tribunal withdrew torture charges against him for lack of witnesses. His other charges remain. The flying squad were last week forced to break into Kirumira's home to arrest him, a day after he vowed to resign.
