The High Court in Gulu has released on bail 12 people who were part of the 34 arrested people during the chaos in Arua that allegedly culminated into the stoning of President Museveni’s convoy.

These including MPs Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine, Kassiano Wadri, Paul Mwiru and Gerard Karuhanga, Michael Mabikke(former MP) were among the 12 released by the court on bail on Monday.

Through their lawyers led by Medard Sseggona, the group argued that they have their constitutional right, their deteriorating health situation after the alleged torture by security agencies and presumption of innocence among their grounds for applying for bail.

In response, the state prosecutor Lilian Omara did not object to the bail application but asked for stringent terms including confiscation of their passports before being temporarily released.

In his ruling, Justice Stephen Mubiru agreed with both parties before releasing the 12 on bail.
The judge warned the accused against discussing the ingredients of the matter in a public domain as this would be prejudicing the case in court.
