Former Police Crime intelligence Boss Col Ndahura Atwooki charged by Army Court

Col Atwooki Ndahura, the former police director of Crime Intelligence has Friday been remanded to Makindye Military Prison over accusations of interfering with the process of law.

Col. Ndahura was arraigned before the Unit Disciplinary Committee (UDC) of the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) at Mbuya, close to two weeks after his arrest.

He is one of the 26 police and military officers who were arrested over suspected criminal activities during the 13-year reign of Gen Kale Kayihura as head of the police force.

Army and Defence Spokesperson Brig. Richard Karemire said that Col Ndahura was charged with interfering with the process of law contrary to Section 166 of the UPDF Act 2005.

The Mbuya-based UDC chaired by Col Tom Kabuye remanded Col Ndahura to Makindye Military Prison until July 13 this year.
The law:
Section 166(1) of the UPDF Act of 2005, states that a person subject to military law, who unlawfully interferes with the process of law as set out in the Act, commits an offence and is, on conviction, liable to imprisonment not exceeding seven years.
