MEMBERS of the Parliamentary committee probing the NSSF have been summoned by the police.

Police spokesperson Judith Nabakooba yesterday disclosed that the 20-member team was summoned through the office of the Speaker by CID deputy director, Hajji Moses Balimwoyo.

The MPs, who are to appear at the CID head office in Kampala on Friday, are to substantiate reports that some of the documents presented to them for perusal were forged.

“Inquiries into allegations of forgery of documents are underway. We need to know the origin of the documents that were presented to Parliament,” Nabakooba told The New Vision, adding that the chairperson and his entire team were expected.

Parliament publicist Helen Kaweesa confirmed receipt of the summons but clarified that only the chairperson or a member of the team would appear.

The New Vision last week reported that the bank papers circulated in Parliament were forged. The documents were meant to prove that security minister Amama Mbabazi had paid a bribe to finance minister Ezra Suruma so that the latter approves the land deal with NSSF.

An anonymous letter, accompanied by a copy of a cheque, claimed that sh410m was paid from the account of Mbabazi’s daughter, Rachel, to Everlight College Bunga, the school belonging to Mrs. Suruma.

However, the bank concerned denied any payment to the school. The cheque book had been stolen from Rachel’s car in Kampala two weeks earlier.
