Uganda: Incommunicado detention/fear of torture

, Index number: AFR 59/003/2007

Ugandan police arrested at least 41 foreign nationals, including Titi Masudi, Kahindo Kabaya, Bikay Kusimuweri, Patrick Kabula, Ngunda Bawula and Fabrice Buregeya, in Kampala on 13 August. They were initially detained incommunicado at the headquarters of the police Rapid Response Unit in Kireka, Kampala. New reports suggest that on 17 or 18 August some of the detainees were transferred to Luzira, the central prison in Kampala. Amnesty International is concerned that those who have not yet been transferred from the police Rapid Response Unit are being held incommunicado and are at risk of torture.
