The five suspects who had been acquitted of having been part of the group that bombed Kampala in 2010 have been rearrested, drugs Chimp Corps have learnt.
The trial judge Alphonse Owiny-Dollo on Thursday afternoon acquitted Muhammad Hamid Suleiman, web Suleiman Mbuthia, web Omar Awadh Omar, Abubaker Batemyeto and Dr.Ismail Kalule citing lack of evidence from the prosecution linking them to the mission.
However after the court session, these together with the other 8 who had been convicted were driven in the prisons bus back to Luzira, raising suspicion especially from their lead lawyer Caleb Alaka who wondered why they had been taken back despite the judge setting them free.
On Friday morning, the prisons bus came with only the 8 convicts to court.
ChimpReports has learnt from sources that they were released on Friday morning before being rearrested.
The prisons spokesperson Frank Baine,  confirmed the suspects had been released from prisons.
However according to one of their lawyers, their clients are neither in prison nor at their respective homes – raising more suspicion.
This investigate website spoke to another officer in the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions who confirmed they had been rearrested.
