FDC Spokesperson Toterebuka Bamwenda says the party has directed its lawyers to drag government to court for stifling dissent using obnoxious laws.

He says FDC lawyers will ask Constitutional Court today Monday to declare the treason charges unlawful.

Toterebuka further adds government intends to instill fear in the opposition using treason charges where convicts face a death penalty.

Meanwhile, FDC treason suspects will today Monday appear at Nakawa Court for mention of their case.

The trio has since been remanded at Luzira Prison for allegedly plotting to overthrow government.

According to prosecution, the trio in September mobilised people to cause riots in Kampala, and the entire country by extension, with the view of causing violent regime change.

IGP Maj. Gen. Kale Kayihura says the FDC officials mobilised goons in Kampala to destroy property using political violence.

Kayihura notes the opposition stalwarts held meetings with several thugs in Kampala and planned on ousting Museveni unlawfully.

The accused deny the allegations.
