National Unity Platform have vowed to run to the high court to appeal against the court martial ruling, which denied 36 of their supporters bail on Monday.
The seven member panel chaired by Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti sitting at Makindye, yesterday declined to release on bail 36 NUP supporters on grounds that they would continue to incite violence if released, ordering the state to expedite investigations into the case.
NUP said that trey are disappointed with a decision by the General Court Martial to deny its supporters bail.
The party Secretary General David Lewis Rubongoya described the ruling as continued violation of people’s human rights.
He said that they’re planning to petition the high court for justice.
