Kampala High Court set 6th April as the date to rule out Uganda Revenue Authority’s issues with Hon Robert Kyagulanyi’s bullet proof car.
Hon Robert Kyagulanyi commonly known as Bobi Wine last month posted on his social media handles that he had received a bullet proof car as a gift from his supporters yet URA said they never knew how it reached his home because they had under taxed it.
Justice Emmanuel Baguma, set the ruling date Thursday after the lawyers of Mr Kyagulanyi and URA appeared before him for guidance on how to proceed.
In the timelines given by court, Justice Baguma ordered the parties to file written submissions which he will base on to deliver his ruling next month.
“Mr Kyagulanyi’s lawyers led by Mr Geoffrey Turyamusiima have up to March 11 to do so while the tax body has up to March 15 to respond.” He said.
Should any new issues arise from the submissions of URA, the court said Mr Kyagulanyi has up to March 19 to respond to them.
Still during yesterday’s session, Mr Kyagulanyi’s lawyers told court that their client doesn’t have any problem with the tax body re-assessing his bullet proof car as long as it’s done in his presence and at his home in Magere in Wakiso District
