France gives Shs700m to S.Sudan refugees

Pader

Five suspected homosexuals arrested last week in Pader District were released on police bond. Pader District Police Commander, Ambrose Sabiti, told the Daily Monitor that the suspects were given police bonds as required by law.

“Our investigative team is still on the ground and once the investigations are completed, they will be taken to court anytime,” Mr Sabiti said.

However, the Daily Monitor has learnt that police gave bond to the suspects after pressure was put on them by the human rights organisations in the district. Residents accused the suspected homosexuals of allegedly promoting homosexuality in both primary and secondary schools in Pader Town council.

The suspects were arrested by police after a tip off by residents. Among a the suspects were two businessmen, one teacher, and two students who were reported to be working closely in recruiting pupils and students with the intention to engage them in promoting the practice in schools andin the community.

Last year, one of the teachers in the district, reported a similar case to Pader District authorities.
In February, President Museveni appended his signature on the Anti homosexuality Bill amidst protest from the Western world.
