Laban Joshua Musinguzi, the Coordinator of the Parliamentary Forum for Labour, Decent Employment and Productivity has vowed to intervene in the case where the Country manager of the Turkish Construction Company is accused of not only Trafficking people but as well as assaulting employees.
Mehmet Ozgur Bali, who is on the run is accused of trafficking in person, malicious damage, and causing grievous harm to Fred Arim, an IT specialist.
Arim, according to spyreports had provided a service to the company but upon asking for his pay, he was instead beaten up by Bilir and his gadgets damaged.
It was against those backgrounds, that he was arrested and detained at Bugolobi Police before being arraigned before Nakawa Chief Magistrate’s Court last week.
He was remanded but later released, under unclear circumstances according to media reports.
Last week, Arim petitioned Sarah Lwanga, the Inspector of Courts over the matter, which prompted Lwanga to write to the Nakawa Chief Magistrate demanding answers to the circumstances under which Bilir was released.
She also ordered for a probe into the conduct of Grade Magistrate Irene Akella who presided over the matter Now, responding to Lwanga, Nakawa Chief Magistrate Akullo Elizabeth Ogwal issued an arrest warrant against the suspect.
Speaking to DaParrot, Musinguzi who appeared angry said such people do not deserve any space in Uganda since their hobby is to exploit and assault Ugandans yet they (Ugandans) have offered them with services.
“We are still analyzing the story and trying to seek justice for the person who was assaulted because the evidence is there,” he said adding,
“We are as well also trying to see the person who was in charge of causing that harm to this Ugandan who had gone to ask for his money. We are trying to understand the motive behind it we are working with all other MDAs and stakeholders to ensure that justice prevails,”
Musinguzi said that as the forum, they make sure that they fight and advocate for the safe labor of all Ugandans working both within and abroad.
“As stakeholders, we need to understand that we have to work hand in hand to help Ugandans and we are going to do compliance checks in all factories, we shall come and listen to workers and really understand what they go through,” he said.
