The suspects were expected to appear in Kabale today Tuesday for hearing of their case.
However, the trial could not kick off following the absence of the chief magistrate and the state attorney.
The two judicial officers who have been handling the case were transferred.

Prosecution alleges that on July 14, 2012 while at a rally at Kabale Municipal stadium, the trio incited the public against policemen on duty leading to the destruction of police vehicles and the injuring four cops.
