Some of the 35 treason suspects who were arrested in Arua town in August 2018 have asked court to compel police return their confiscated items.
The suspects including Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine returned to Gulu Chief Magistrates Court on Friday for trial.
The suspects told Gulu Grade One Magistrate, Isaac Imram Kintu, that their property was confiscated by police during their arrest in Arua town.
They claim their property since they have no connection with the case.
Some of the items include Bobi Wine’s wedding ring and Arua Municipality MP Kassiano Wadri’s Shs85m and a pistol.
On the other hand, Night Asara, the woman who was tortured and appeared in court bleeding from her private parts, claims police took two knickers from her bag and has since refused to return them.
Bobi Wine later told press that police took his watch, Shs3.5m and $600 notes he had on him at Arua Police Station.
State prosecutor Julius Ocen defended police saying the taken items are court exhibits needed during the trial.
Asara and Jane Abola were badly tortured by military to the point of failing to walk on their own.
Asara and Sauda Madaada were later hospitalised at Mengo hospital in Kampala.
