PATHOLOGISTS from Mulago hospital and officials from the government chemist yesterday began an analysis on the body of Pt. John Atwine, a key suspect in the Robinah Kiyingi murder.

The examination of the body got underway as it emerged yesterday that rabid changes, with more stringent measures, had been made at several court stations in regard to visitation of suspects following Atwine’s death.

Atwine died on Friday in Luzira Upper Prison after being treated by the prison’s medical staff.

Yesterday the team, comprising two pathologists, cut open Atwine’s stomach to examine his gut. The stomach had earlier been sent to the laboratory of the government chemist in Wandegeya.

In the rabid changes at the courts, visitors who hitherto had been seeing suspects at will, now have to register with prison authorities and visiting hours have also been changed.

Atwine’s death sparked speculation, with prison authorities suspecting that he could have been poisoned or could have committed suicide.

The in-charge of prisoners at the Buganda Road Court, ASP Edotu, said, “We are under instructions to register all visitors who come to see suspects.”
