High Court will tomorrow make a ruling on FDC’s Dr. Kiiza Besigye’s bail application in the treason case. Besigye asked court to grant him bail on grounds of being of advanced age, since court usually recognizes age 50 as advanced age. However, prosecution demanded evidence that Besigye is indeed 60-years old, which he did not readily have.
According to Florence Akello the Lead Prosecutor, the application should be dismissed due the gravity of the case and the possibility for Besigye to commit other offenses, given his earlier defiance utterances. Rachael Nakiwala has more.
