Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department of police (CIID) has summoned businessman Hassan Basajjabalaba on allegations of obtaining money by false pretence.
The tycoon, according to the report, fleeced $200,000 (Shs 700m) from Fauzia Khan, a tycoon based in Abu Dhabi, the capital and the second most populous city of the United Arab Emirates [UAE].
The money was wired by Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank through M/S Haba Group (U) Ltd in Bank of Baroda on April 16, 2010.
Basajjabalaba is expected at CIID headquarters in Kibuli, Kampala on January 23 to record a statement.
He is also expected to report to Deputy Director Economic Crimes and Anti-Corruption Division for “advice”.
