Fifteen people accused of murdering former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi have asked court to dismiss their case, saying prosecution has for close to a year failed to gather evidence linking them to the crime.
The suspects, who are out on bail, had reported back to Nakawa Chief Magistrate’s Court today for the mention of their case before Magistrate Noah Sajjabi.
The request to dismiss the case was made by their lawyer, Mr Anthony Wameeli, after State prosecutor Joyce Anyango informed court that police have not concluded investigations.
Mr Sajjabi said he will pronounce himself on the matter on April 17.
The suspects were arrested and charged with six counts, including terrorism, aggravated robbery and the murder of Kaweesi, his body guard Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Wambewa in March 2017.
However, police concluded inquiries in respect of eight suspects, who are already committed to stand trial before the International Crimes Division of the High Court.
