ASP Kirumira in the 'caged' police van at police headquarters in Naguru just before he was charged

The Chairman of police tribunal SCP Dennis Odongpiny has today been dragged to High Court-Civil division by Abubakar Kawooya.
Kawooya is the father to embattled former Buyende District Police Commander Muhammad Kirumira. Kawooya in his submission contends that his son was subjected to illegal proceedings. He also contends that Kirumira is protected by a whistle blowers act despite leveling various charges against him.
According to Kawooya, the suspect will not get free and fair hearing therefore he wants court to issue an interim order stopping police tribunal from trying the outspoken DPC.
Last week Buganda Road Court dismissed Kirumira’s application for unconditional releases on grounds he is legally charged before the police court for offences of corruption and professional misconduct.
The controversial ASP Kirumira, who is facing various charges that were slammed against him while he worked in Nansana, Wakiso District was last week denied bail after court chairman told him to bring three sureties above his rank.
On top of withdrawing of all torture charges against Kirumira due to lack of witnesses, he is charged with among others extortion, corruption, bribery, unlawful arrests and excessive use of authority
