May 18 is the new date when 19 members of Children of the Sun Foundation (CosfUganda) who were arrested at the Cosf shelter are expected to be delivered at Nsangi Magistrate’s Court. “You’re hereby directed to produce the above mentioned accused in the magistrate’s court of Nsangi on the 18th day of May 2020 at 9 o’clock,” the production warrant addressed to Kitalya Prison states. In a related development, a high court judge in Kampala on Tuesday heard an application filed by Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF) seeking access to the arrested 19 suspects. The judge is to deliver a ruling on the HRAPF request tomorrow (Wednesday ) in Kampala, according to Dr Adrian Jjuuko, the executive director of HRAPF Uganda. Ms Patricia Kimera, the lawyer representing the accused at Nsangi Magistrates Court, told Erasing 76 Crimes Tuesday in Kampala that she hoped her clients would be brought to court this time round on Monday. As of today, they have been imprisoned on remand for 44 days without trial.
