The former General Manager of Balton Uganda Ltd., Zeev Shiff has snubbed police summons to appear at the criminal intelligence and investigations directorate (CIID) on allegations of embezzlement and causing financial loss of over sh76m to the company.

Shiff who is the current chairman of Bolton, a rival company according to summons dated February 3 was expected to appear at CIID on February 13 to answer queries regarding the loss amounting to sh76,300,500.

“As you are aware this directorate is investigating the above case in connection to the unlawful sale on credit of sanitary Bins and chemicals to Stream Energy Holdings Ltd.,”

“This is to request you to report to the directorate of Criminal Intelligence and Investigations at Kibuli on February 13 at 11:00am so as to provide valuable information surrounding the matter under investigations,” the summons signed by Suzan Kalukusu on behalf of the director CIID reads.

The summons according to sources at Bolton were delivered on Tuesday however, Zeev Shiff did not appear. According to sources on Wednesday claimed to be indisposed and thus did not appear on Thursday. Also summoned alongside Zeev Shiff is Michael Musyoka, one of the public health managers.  However, Zeev Shiff did not appear.

The director CIID Grace Akullo could not be reached for comment as she was reported in Kyankwanzi. It is alleged that around June last year moments before joining Bolton, Zeev Shiff while still General manager at Balton sold the bins which were not meant for sale and chemicals to Stream Energy Holding, allegedly a non-existent organization.

The two agricultural inputs firms are locked in a bitter legal battle over getup with Balton claiming Bolton has hoodwinked the public into believing that they are part of Balton, consequently injuring their business.
