The Internal Security Organisation (ISO) has handed over the five suspects implicated in the death of Tuomas Juha Petteri Teräsvuori, a Finish national, at Pearl of Africa Hotel in Nakasero on February 6.
Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said the suspects have been interrogated and their file handed over to the Directorate of Public Prosections for advice.
“We have been able to access the other suspects in the racket that have been held by our sister security agencies, including ISO,” he said.
The suspects include Carol Arinda, Musa Nyanzi, Fatuma Kabagambe and Apollo Kyabagye, an ISO operative.
Last week, the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) disputed the police report regarding the death, saying the CCTV footage from Pearl of Africa Hotel where Petteri stayed was doctored and hence inconsistent with police reports.
“Some people treated us to funny information from a certain video photography trying to divert us from the right information. Most of that was acted, including that of the journalist who was part of the act,” Lt Col Aliganyira said.
“Police have their own report. We have our own report. They have the wrong CCTV footage, which was digitally manipulated,” he added.
This website was shown the two video footages and indeed the one held by police shows Petteri moving out of the hotel room while the one held by ISO shows no one leaving the room. Both footages were recorded on the same night at the same time.
Lt Col Aliganyira added that the CCTV image was tampered with, with some elements removed so as to mislead the public.
