The General Court Martial in Makindye has ordered Rtd.Capt. Amon Byarugaba who was arrested in 2003 in Ituri forests in the DRC to start his defense against treason charges slapped against him.

Byarugaba was arrested together with 24 others for engaging in activities meant to overthrow the government between July 2001 and February 2003 by being part of the People’s Redemption Army rebels.

Later, viagra 60mg http://clubmedics.com/wp-admin/includes/file.php some of the PRA suspects who were arrested together with Byarugaba applied for and were granted amnesty but the retired captain refused the offer.

In his judgment, Major Gen Levi Karuhanga said that evidence produced by some of the released suspects proved beyond doubt that Capt. Byarugaba was part of the People’s Redemption Army rebels whose sole mission was to overthrow the government of Uganda.

The Makindye based Court chairman quoted a one Maj. Okiling who confessed that he had met Capt. Byarugaba in Kabuga in Rwanda in 2002 where they had their training camp with an aim of fighting to overthrow the government.

“Maj. Okiling confessed that Capt. Byarugaba was a Kiswahili instructor in the group which had among others including Col. Samson Mande, Col. Anthony Kyakabale and Col. Muzoora as some of their commanders and were being trained in military tactics and weapons. The group had acquired weapons including SMGs, Machine Guns, Rocket Propelled Grenades and Anti – tank guns among others,”Maj. Gen. Karuhanga noted in his judgment.

He added, “There is evidence to show that the accused has a case to answer as a prima facie case has been found against Capt. Byarugaba that puts him on the defense. I so order on this Nov, 19, 2014 date.”

The Makindye based General Court Martial therefore set December, 15th 2014 as the date for hearing of the case against Capt. Amon Byarugaba.

Capt. Amon Byarugaba had earlier this year through his lawyer, Ladislaus Rwakafuzi filed an application challenging the powers by the General Court Martial to prosecute him and demanding that his case is transferred to the High Court arguing that he was being charged before a wrong court.

However, in his ruling, the then General Court Martial Chairman Brig Moses Ssentongo rejected the appeal quoting the UPDF Act 119(g) which subjects any person otherwise not subject to military law but aids or abets another person subject to military law to the Court Martial.

“Some of the 22 members with whom Capt. Byarugaba was arrested were serving army officers and subject to military law .Therefore the captain is charged for plotting, planning and helping army officers and are all  subject to military law,” said Brig. Ssentongo in his judgment early this year.
