The Magistrate’s decision followed endless adjournments sought by prosecution whenever the case came up for hearing.

State Prosecutor Harriet Nakigozi had asked for another adjournment to enable them finalize investigations in this matter, a request the Magistrate rejected.

Kamasanyu ruled that prosecution had not optimally used previous adjournments before dismissing the case.
