Once again, the criminal division of the High Court has delayed the proceedings related to the charges against individuals connected to the 2018 kidnapping and brutal killing of Susan Magara, a cashier at Bwendero Diary Farm (BDF).

The suspects, currently in remand, had sought acquittal on the basis of alleged torture. The court had previously instructed them to provide a valid certificate demonstrating the rehabilitation they claimed to have undergone at the African Centre for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture Victims.

In the latest session on Monday at the Criminal Division of the High Court in Kampala, the accused requested an adjournment until Wednesday, November 15. They expressed hope that by then, their defense team would present appropriate medical documentation supporting their assertions of torture.

Presiding Judge Alex Ajiji deemed the suspects’ plea for an adjournment justifiable, especially considering their commitment to providing valid documents substantiating their claims.

“The suspects have a valid reason to seek an adjournment, and it will be granted,” ruled Justice Ajiji.

While the prosecution, led by Irene Nakimbugwe, did not object to the adjournment, they requested the continuation of proceedings on the specified date if the defense failed to produce the required medical information.

“We have no objection to the adjournment, but if they do not produce the medical documents on Wednesday, then prosecution will proceed. This case needs to be expedited,” submitted Irene Nakimbugwe.
