KAMPALA - Judges of the International Crimes Division of the High Court are today expected to deliver their verdict on whether or not jailed Muslim clerics facing murder charges have a case to answer.

This comes after a three-week long adjournment for judges to study prosecution evidence, submissions from both sides and analyze it all.

If ruled that they have no case to answer, all the suspects are to be set free. But if ordered to defend themselves, they are to be given three options: giving a sworn defense, unsworn defense or keeping silent.

The jailed group is part of the Nakasero Tabliq section with its former leader Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Kamoga being the prime suspect.

It is alleged that Kamoga and his co-accused murdered Sheikhs Mustapha Bahiga and Hassan Kirya all in the name of fighting for the Mosque leadership.

They are also facing terrorism charges.
