“The applicant claimed to be experiencing unbearable pain owing to the implants that were inserted in her breasts and that her stomach had swollen having delivered by cesarean section.

She also asserted that the wound she sustained was oozing pus but she brought no medical report to that effect.

“Her sureties could have been substantial, but the burden was on her to prove that there exist exceptional circumstances warranting the grant of bail, but she failed to discharge this burden. The application is herby dismissed,” Justice Amoko noted in her ruling delivered by the Court’s registrar Elias Kisawuzi.

She said though her baby needed care, that is not reason enough to grant her bail because if that were to be the case, criminals would rush to conceive to defeat the ends of justice and other breastfeeding mothers in Prison could have been released. She agreed with the prosecutor Fred Kakooza that since a police officer, Joseph Kyenda, attached to the Directorate of Public Prosecution Anti-corruption Division had sworn an affidavit indicating that the record of proceedings is ready, then Black’s lawyer Fred Mukasa should just fix the hearing of the appeal.

Amoko also rejected Black’s assertions that she was at a risk of contracting cancer and therefore needed quick medical attention from her expert in Dubai, noting that Dr. Joseph Andama of Manction Bay prison did not state in his medical report that Black was incapable of getting adequate treatment from the prison.

Amoko stated there was also no independent report indicating that she needs to see an expert in Dubai.

After the ruling, her lawyer informed the Registrar Kisawuzi that he intends to appeal this decision to a penal of three judges.

“Though it is the applicant’s right to appeal, a formal application stating out the grounds for appeal must be made to this court,” Kisawuzi said.

Black was handed a four-year jail term by Catherine Bagemereire of the Anti-Corruption court for having embezzled over Shs11bn from Daveshan Development Uganda Ltd, a company she formed with her British lover David Greenhalgh.
