Kipoi is remanded in Makindye Military barracks on security related charges. His lawyer, Retired Major Ronald Iduli, insists that Kipoi has a constitutional right to bail since he is still innocent until proven guilty.
During cross examination, Kipois lawyer, retired Major Ronald Iduli tasked Captain Majid to present some evidence like pictures, phone printouts, videos and bicycle to substantiate his claims. The matter will now return to Court on February, 18th, 2019 for further hearing.
Gen Gutti asked Iduli the number of times he has petitioned High Court and the Constitutional Court Challenging Kipois trial in the Court Martial and lost. In his response, Iduli said all he needs is an impartial and an independent trial.
Turyamureeba also said that by the time he arrested Kipoi, he didnt inform the then Flying Squad Commander, Nixon Agasirwe, saying he didnt have formal arresting orders for the former legislator save for the instructions from the late Kaweesi.
Through his lawyer, Ojok and Co Advocates, Kipoi wants court to order the Director of Public Prosecution-DPP, Justice Mike Chibita to stop prosecuting him in the General Court Martial yet he is a civilian.
