Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Attorney General has denied the former Executive Director of the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS), David Livingstone Ebiru’s request for a temporary injunction to halt his bribery trial. Ebiru had sought this injunction against the Inspector General of Government (IGG) and her agents, along with a compensation order for alleged violations of his fundamental rights.

Although there are allegations that Ebiru confessed to bribing the UNBS board with 100 million shillings to avoid suspension, he claims these statements were made in anger and that he never actually bribed anyone. He also argues that there’s an impending threat of arreshq8716 Italy écharpe en tricot pour bébé westerm kalap two people fishing kayak superfit galaxy ab1553 adidas jordan retro 3 věšák na klíče domeček adidas superstar ii femme sandalias adidas rojas hombre nike survetement nike survetement mochila anekke arizona asu football jersey kurtka tommy hilfiger czarna damskat due to a pending warrant in the anti-corruption court, rendering his injunction application ineffective.

In the main case, Ebiru aims to challenge the legality of the criminal summons, warrant of arrest, and trial.

During a recent hearing at the Anti-corruption court before Judge Jane Okuo Kajuga, the Attorney General raised preliminary objections, citing issues of territorial and material jurisdiction. The judge is set to deliver her ruling on the matter on September 19th.

The prosecution alleges that between October and December 2022, Ebiru attempted to offer 100 million Shillings as a bribe to Charles Masekuura, the Chairperson of the UNBS board, in a bid to retain his position as the Executive Director of UNBS.

On August 8, 2023, a warrant of arrest was issued against Ebiru by the Chief Magistrates Court. However, his evasion of arrest led him to file a case against the Attorney General, contesting the criminal trial.
