The Anti-Corruption Court in Kololo, has today granted bail to State Minister for planning, Mr Amos Lugoloobi who has been on remand since Monday following his arrest over Karamoja iron sheets scandal last Friday.
The Principal Senior Grade One Magistrate, Ebert Asiimwe granted Mr Lugoolobi bail on conditions that he pays Shs10 million cash, surrenders the original title of one of his pieces of land to court and that he shall not leave Uganda without seeking permission from court.
He was also ordered to surrender his diplomatic passport before each of his seven sureties were bonded at Shs100 million not cash after court found them substantial.
“Failure to comply with the bail terms will lead to automatic cancelation of the bail,” the magistrate bellowed before adjourning the case to June 2, 2023 when he’s expected to return to court.
This comes a day after State minister for Karamoja was also remanded to Luzira.
