The Criminal Division of High Court has fixed a date for hearing the bail application of Brian Isiko.
The Buganda Grade One magistrate, Gladys Kamasanyu jailed the 25-year-old YMCA student for two and half years for cyber harassment and offensive communication.
The student was found guilty of stalking the Kabarole District Woman Member of Parliament, Sylvia Rwabogo. However, Isiko's lawyer, Abdul Katuntu filed an application challenging his sentence.
He also filed another application before high court on July 17, 2018 asking court to release his client on bail pending the hearing of his appeal.
Now, High Court Judge, Jane Frances Abodo has set August 31st 2018 to hear the bail application. Lt Reagan Grace Muganza, one of Isiko's sureties says he should be released on bond as the Court prepares to hear the appeal challenging his sentence.
//Cue in: "That one, there…
Cue out: are getting justice".//
Muganza says they are soliciting money so that in case court releases Isiko, he can proceed with his studies at the Jinja based Institution.
