The former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura has spoke back to the sanctions issued via the United Kingdom executive in opposition to him over alleged human rights violations.

The UK executive slapped sanctions on the previous police leader by which he’s going to now not be allowed to go into into UK, channel cash thru UK banks and making the most of their financial system.

“While Kayihura was in charge, he oversaw multiple units responsible for human rights violations including torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and punishment,” the remark via the UK Foreign Secretary, James Cleverly learn partly.

However, based on the sanctions, the previous police leader thru his legal professionals of Kampala Associated Advocates disregarded the allegations in opposition to him as unfounded.

The allegations don’t have any basis each in details and regulation. These sanction via the UK are via america. Nothing new. It is recycling of outdated garbage,” Jet Tumwebaze, a spouse at Kampala Associated Advocates stated on a remark on behalf of the previous police leader.

The legal professionals defined that once the allegations got here, that they had a gathering with former United States Ambassador to Uganda Deborah Malac by which the previous IGP pointed to them that the proof they primarily based on was once all concoction.

“We were later invited by the US at the embassy. We wanted to know the specifics. When we were in the meeting, they didn’t come up with specifics. The few they presented, we debunked. The allegations centred on suspects in the terrorism case. Each of those allegations were fully investigated and each has a file. They promised to get back to us. They didn’t. At that time, the US didn’t agree with the UK about the sanctions. M5, a UK security agency, told them (US) that the allegations were false, because they (US and UK agents) both came here and interacted with the suspects.”

“In truth, after the good fortune of the case, they awarded Gen Kale an award as some of the highest law enforcement officials in Africa.

It is a marvel that they sanctioned him for the case they granted him an award.”

The legal professionals stated the most important downside that Gen Kayihura has highlighted to america was once doing their “emperoristic work” the usage of human rights allegations as a canopy “while violating Gen Kale’s rights.”

“What does your children and wife have to do with your work? If you have a case, bring it and give the accused the right to be heard. Over time, some sober people get out of office and those doing politics come in. They are regurgitating the same old allegations.”
