33 people including four Members of Parliament have been charged with treason for allegedly attacking and damaging a motor vehicle which belongs to President Yoweri Museveni’s motorcade during the Monday violence in Arua.

The group’s lawyers led by Medard Ssegona told court that the accused be allowed access to proper medical treatment, arguing that they had been badly beaten and tortured by soldiers of the Special Forces Command following arrest on Monday evening.

They have been remanded until 30 August, 2018.
