The court ruled that Basajjabala’s petition had raised important issues that need interpretation


In the petition, Bassajjalaba contests the cancellation of his bail, and the DPP’s decision to drop charges against him at Buganda road court and carrying on with the same charges at the Anti-Corruption Court.


Basajjabala is being accused of uttering false documents arising from tax disputes of sh20b and forging and forging a judicial statement.


The judges further ordered that Basajjabala’s passport be returned to him to go to Nairobi for treatment and also ordered that he reports to the Court Registrar instead of the Criminal Investigations Department.


On March 13, the Anti- Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Irene Akankwasa cancelled Basajjabalaba and his brother Muzamiru Basajjabalaba bail referring to it as an exceptional circumstance.


She ruled that she was not aware of the Constitutional Court ruling and added that bail does not automatically lapse upon committal of an accused person.
