Prosecution averred that the five tortured, Mr. Kasim Ssuuna, when he had gone to the head office of Mukwano Group of Companies Ltd and asked to see the boss over compensation for losing his two fingers when a machine chopped them off – five years ago.

However, Suuna was denied entry at the gate and instead the policemen were called to reign in on him.

The five are accused of discreditable or irregular conduct and scandalous manner code 12 and 14 of the Police Act.
