Police Officers Who Assaulted Journalists to Go Scot-Free

The commandant of  Kampala Metropolitan Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi has said that the three journalists assaulted by the police were to blame, accusing them of out stepping their boundaries at the Central Police Station (CPS).
He told Human Rights Network for Journalists- Uganda (HRNJ-Uganda) at CPS in Kampala that it was wrong for the journalists to approach the police station as though it was an ordinary place. He said the police cannot investigate the matter since the journalists have declined to deposit their damaged cameras with police.
