On Tuesday, the youths, supported by Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF), filed a civil lawsuit at the High Court seeking redress for “torture, inhuman and degrading treatment, discrimination and violation of privacy.” They claim these acts were perpetrated against them by Hajji Abdul Kiyimba, the chairperson of Kyengera Town Council, during their arrest, and Philimon Woniala, the Deputy Officer in Charge of Kitalya Mini-Maxi Prison, while they were detained.
