Zaake wins Case against Gov't, awarded 75Million

The High Court has ordered the government to pay costs worth 75 Million to the Mityana Legislator Francis Zaake after winning his torture case against the government.

“I am delighted to inform you comrades that I have WON the case I filed in the High Court against criminal police officers who tortured me in April last year for donating food to my neighbours during the first lockdown,” Zaake said.

“The Judge, Her Lordship Esta Nambayo, has declared that the intentional infliction upon me of pain and injury during my detention by the Police infringed on my “fundamental human rights to dignity and freedom from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” which are protected by the 1995 constitution”

” She has also declared that the 10 days I was detained while being tortured without being presented to Court was in breach of my right to liberty, and consequently ordered the State to pay me UGX 75,000,000M as compensation, as well as paying costs of the case,” he added.
