KAMPALA: The Internal Security Organisation (ISO), has summoned AF Mpanga Advocates, including city lawyer David Mpanga, over allegations of forgery, embezzlement and money laundering carried out on Account No.903000802470 in Stanbic Bank.
Those invited for interrogation are: AF Mpanga, David Mpanga, Jaqueline Lule, Hawa Bukenya and Angelo Ocho. They were invited by Ben Michael Ogingo, the CI Deputy Commander Kampala Metropolitan Police on February 28, 2019.
The group is expected to report at ISO headquarters in Nakasero on March 7, 2019 in the morning.
The allegations were reported on case reference 09/09/01/2019.
David F.K Mpanga was recently dropped as Buganda’s Attorney General in a recent Buganda Kingdom cabinet reshuffle. Mpanga has been assigned as Minister of Special Assignments.
Analysts claim the reshuffle targeted Mpanga, who in the recent past had been named in illicit transactions regarding the closure and sale of Crane Bank Limited by the Bank of Uganda (BoU).
Mpanga is currently battling a conflict of interest case in which Bank of Uganda on June 30, 2017, sued city businessman Sudhir Ruparelia and his investments firm Meera Investments Ltd seeking to recover about Shs400bn allegedly extracted fraudulently from Crane Bank together with Freehold titles of the Bank’s branches.
But Sudhir protested the presence of Mpanga as the applicant’s attorney.
