Nixon Agasirwe’s bail application hangs in balance after the Court Martial Chairperson Andrew Gutti adjourned the proceedings without stating a date for the hearing of Nicksons’s bail application.
Nixon was last evening driven back to Prison after Court adjourned with any mention of his bail application hearing.
Agasirwe who had appeared for the hearing of his bail application spent the whole day in court cells until the Court Chairperson adjourned the proceedings without giving a date for his bail application hearing.
In 2013 Agasirwe was arrested and charged alongside other Senior Police Commander for allegedly kidnapping Joel Mutabazi President Kagame’s former bodyguard who was later extradited and sentenced to life imprisonment in Rwanda.
Agasirwe’s co-accused including Joel Aguma, Benon Atwebembeire, Abel Tumukunde, Faisal Katende, James Magada, and Amon Kwarisiima have all since been granted bail pending trial but Agasirwe’s bail application hangs in balance.
The State claims that on October 25, 2013, at Kamengo in Mpigi District the suspects, while in unlawful possession of firearms and grenades, kidnapped and extradited Mutabazi without his consent to the government of Rwanda.
Mutabazi had been granted asylum in Uganda and Human Rights Watch at the time accused the Kampala Establishment of having “utterly failed” to protect Mutabazi, who was at “serious risk” of persecution in his home country
Mutabazi a former bodyguard to President Kagame was allegedly kidnapped by the Suspects and handed over to the Government of Rwanda without his consent where he was imprisoned and charged with terrorism and murder and is currently serving a life sentence.
