The former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura has asked the General Court Martial to release him on bail because he is a clean man who has never been indicted in any courts of law.
Through his lawyers led by Peter Kabatsi, the former police boss told the army court that he is an innocent man who has never been charged of any offence.
“He has never appeared before any court anywhere in this country to be charged with any offence and by all accounts, the applicant is a very law abiding citizen.”
Kabatsi also noted that Kayihura is of advanced age and entitled to bail adding that he had been in detention for over 72 days.
The lawyers also noted that his health condition is worrying and he needs to be flown out of the country for treatment.
The lawyers presented Maj Gen James Mugira, Maj Gen Sam Kavuma and Rosemary Tumusiime Bikaaku as his sureties.
The state prosecutors led by Maj Raphael Mugisha asked that Kayihura be released on stringent terms so he cannot imterfere with investigations.
