The police disciplinary court has recommended the demotion of Muhammad Kirumira, after he was convicted of the charge of excessive use of authority.
The court chaired by Senior Commissioner of Police Denis Odongpiny also reprimanded the former Buyende District Police Commander. The same court cleared him of four other charges.
Kirumira had earlier been convicted of unnecessary exercise of authority contrary to section 44 of the police code of conduct when he arrested Flying Squad operatives before parading them before Bukedde television and Kamunye newspaper reporters in 2014 while still the Officer in Charge of Nansana police station.
The disciplinary court subsequently recommended for demotion from the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police to Assistant Inspector of Police.
Kirumira has said that he will appeal the conviction.
