The High Court Civil Division has ordered the Director General of Internal Security Organization-ISO, Fred Kaka Bagyenda to produce New Vision Crime reporter, Charles Etukuri in court on Monday next week, dead or alive.
The Deputy Registrar of the High Court Civil Division, Alex Kauju made the directive, yesterday, afternoon. It follows an application for a habeous Corpus filed by the New Vision legal department backed with an affidavit sworn by Jimmy Ariko, an employee of New Vision following the mysterious arrest of Etukuri and their failure to locate him.
It is claimed that Etukuri was picked up on 13th this month, by operatives from the ISO in connection with a story he wrote about the death of a Finish National at Pearl of Africa hotel commonly known as Aya.
However, Bagyenda says that he is yet to see the order. He also declined to confirm or deny whether they are holding the journalist.
