Legal Brains Trust Chief Executive Officer Isaac Ssemakadde has given Director Of Public Prosecution (DPP) Jane Frances Abodo three day ultimatum to hand business man Hassan Basajjabalaba‘s case back to courts of law for prosecution.
These come few months after Office of DPP in October lost interest in the case matter in which Basajjabalaba and his brother Muzamiru Basajjabalaba obtained Ugx142b money from government as a compensation for the city markets that were in control of the businessman under a lease
The case was filed by Ssemakadde through Legal Brains Trust accusing Basajjabalaba of forgery of a judicial document, uttering of a false document and conspiracy to defeat tax laws.
He was sued alongside his five companies: Haba Group, Victoria International Trading Company, Sheila Investments, Yudaya International Limited, and the First Merchant International Trading Company.
Ssemakadde says it was wrong for government to ‘gift’ Ugx142billions Basajjabalaba for markets that he didn’t add any value onto. ”But most importantly, even after getting all this huge chunk of money, the businessman just forged a fake order and handed it to URA taxes stating that he was cleared not to pay any tax off that money.”
Now Ssemakadde has tasked Abodo to call a press conference and tell Ugandans how she lost interest in such a case involving misusing of taxpayers money but also hindering country’s growth through evading taxes.
”If she thinks her decision to drop out case against Basajjabalaba let her call press conference like we have done and tell Ugandans who sweat to pay taxes how she lost an interest in this case. Meanwhile, we are here to tell her that let it clock Tuesday next week, 13th December 2022 before she takes our case back to court, she will know who we are,” said furious Ssemakadde while banging the table adding;
”In fact, let Abodo and Chief Justice Owiny Dollo tomorrow which is the International Anti Corruption Day, instead of celebrating, sit in their offices and think about their rotten acts which are actually watering the growth of corruption in this country, then after repent and take our case back to court,” added Ssemakadde.
