Oponya asked court to release all of Kipoi’s co-accused unconditionally “because some of them have been on remand for more 200 days yet no case has been brought against them, contrary to the Constitution”.

However, Peace Biira who represented the State opposed the request citing pending inquiries by the DPP.

The Magistrate set July 22 as the date for application for either committal or bail.

Kipoi was arrested in December last year in Kabarole district in connection with alleged subversive activities before being transferred to the police’s Special Investigations Unit in Kireka.

The police accused him of holding a meeting with some Ugandan security officers and Congolese rebel officers. The alleged officers and rebels were also arrested.
