Lawyer Male Mabirizi to sue any police officer that arrests him

City lawyer Male Mabirizi has vowed to sue any police officer that will attempt to arrest him.

This came after the high court of Uganda ordered his immediate arrest for 18months after violating the court order of not attacking judicial officers on social media.

According to Male Mabirizi, the law doesn’t allow his arrest but instead requires that he should be issued a notice to show cause upon request for a warrant.

“THIS IS NOT A WARRANT OF ARREST. THEREFORE ANY @PoliceUg OFFICER WHO TAMPERS WITH MY LIBERTY WILL FACE PERSONAL LEGAL CONSEQUENCES. THE LAW REQUIRES THAT I AM ISSUED A NOTICE TO SHOW CAUSE UPON REQUEST FOR A WARRANT BY KIRYOWA KIWANUKA, IF HE WISHES, IM FREE,”

Male Mabirizi said any officer who tampers with liberty will face personal legal consquences.
