Kampala | The General Court Martial sitting at Makindye in Kampala has discontinued charges of aiding and abetting the kidnap of Rwandan refugees against former Police Standard Unit Commandant SSP Nickson Agasirwe.

Chaired by Brig. Gen. Robert Freeman Mugabe, the GCM withdrew the charges on Monday,  March 5, 2024, against Agasirwe and six other senior Police officers.

Other officers are Col Atwooki Birakurataki Ndahura, Senior Police officers ACP Herbert Muhangi, and ASP Richard Ndaboine.

Others are ASP Patrick Muramira AIP Jonas Ayebaza and D/C Abel Kitagenda Muyomba.

The group, according to the prosecution, was accused of unlawfully kidnapping Jackson Kalemera alias Ndinga and Lieutenant Joel Mutabazi and delivering them to Rwanda without their consent.

State prosecutor Private Regina Nanzala said the UPDF Director of Prosecutions, Lt. Col Raphael Mugisha, sanctioned the withdrawal.

In December 2022, Agasirwe said “Museveni saved my life” after he had spent four years on remand for criminal charges.
