Oulanyah Summoned to High Court Over Kidnap

The High Court in Kampala has summoned the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanya to respond to claims by his political rival Simon Toolit Aketcha that he orchestrated his kidnap at the end of last month.

Toolit alleges in the morning of May 29 while at his home in Gulu, erectile http://csnn.ca/wp-includes/functions.php  Oulanya caused his kidnap by UPDF soldiers, http://darkon.org/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/count.php who blindfolded him and drove him to a safe-house in Kampala for interrogation.

Toolit one of the aspirants who contested for  Omoro county parliamentary seat and lost to Oulanyah,  further alleges that his captors while in the safe-house, insisted to know  why he dragged the Deputy Speaker to court over the disputed polls. They also threatened to kill him if he didn’t withdraw the election petition he filed before Gulu High Court, he adds.

Toolit through his lawyers of Rwakafuuzi and Co Advocates seeks court to declare that his kidnap for three days by the UPDF soldiers on the orders of Oulanya was a violation of his constitutional right to liberty and freedom from cruel and inhumane treatment.

Toolit in the election petition pending verdict is challenging the action of declaring Oulanya winner of Omoro County with no supporting figures

High Court Registrar Alex Ajiji has summoned both Oulanya and the Attorney General who was also listed as a respondent to file their defenses in court within 15 days.
