Bobi Wine Violently Detained at Airport, Prevented from Lawful Travel to Seek Medical Treatment

We are receiving urgent updates from Entebbe International Airport in Uganda, where independent Member of Parliament Bobi Wine has again been attacked by government thugs, prevented from traveling, abducted and thrown into a police van with destination unknown.

This brazen violation of Bobi’s human rights comes not even a week after he suffered extreme torture at the hands of the Uganda authorities. His local and international legal teams are pursuing all available measures to secure his safety, however lawyers express their grave concern over the state’s criminal conduct. We are all deeply concerned for Bobi’s safety at this moment, and we urge your thoughts, prayers, and action.
