FDC Asks Public to Help Identify Hooded Men


The Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party has embarked on a campaign to unearth the identities of the hooded men who attacked members of the public in Kampala this week.
On Tuesday, Police officers and several plain clothed men were seen beating up members of the public who had lined up the road to have a glimpse of Dr.  Kizza Besigye, the former FDC presidential candidate as he drove to his home in Kasanganti following his release from remand in Luzira maximun prison.
On Wednesday, the same men were seen with police beating up people near Busabala road junction along Entebbe Road as Besigye drove to the FDC party headquarters at Najjanankumbi.
Ibrahim Semujju, the FDC party spokesperson, says they have set up an email account to allow members of the public to submit information that can help identify the men.
He says once they receive sufficient information they will decide on whether to drag the suspects before Uganda Human Rights Commission or courts of law for torture as a group as provided for under the Prevention and Prohibition of Torture Act, 2012.
Deputy Police spokesperson, Polly Namaye, says Professional Standards Unit has already launched investigations into the same matter, saying it would be a contradiction for FDC to launch parallel investigations.
