Press Release: Missing Aine Christopher still wanted by Police (Published 08.01.2016)

Go Forward 17.12.15 Free Aine

This is to inform the public that the police are still actively looking for Aine Christopher, who remains missing, but believed to be in hiding, over his alleged involvement and connectivity to acts of assault occasioning bodily and grievous harm, to several victims in Ntungamo District, and also, in response to the criminal summons issued against him by the Chief Magistrates Court, in Jinja.

We want to reiterate that despite the fact that questionable images of a “dead photo”, were published and also posted in the print and social media, we highly believe the suspect is alive, and our police notice for his arrest remain valid. We therefore, call upon members of the public who may be having knowledge of his whereabouts to provide it, so as to enable us establish the circumstances surrounding his alleged disappearance.

We are also calling upon Aine Christopher to come forward and hand himself over to the police for statement recording that would be beneficial to him as an individual, his immediate family, the public that has very keen interest in this matter and for criminal justice.

The police have meanwhile arrested Charles Rwomushana, on credible information that the dangerous and questionable pictures of a “dead Aine” were widely circulated by him online. He is now assisting police with investigations. The two others who published the photos without verifying their correctness and authenticity were released on police bond upon recording their statements.
