BUGANDA Road Court has issued an arrest warrant for Aidah Namuli, a senior administrator with telecommunication company MTN.

Grade One Magistrate Francis Kobusheshe on Friday directed the Police to arrest her after she defied orders to appear in court to answer fraud charges.

Namuli is accused of defrauding the company of sh1b.

She allegedly conspired with James Clinton Benio, a contractor, Patrick Muhoozi, an offline administrator, and Douglas Kibuuka, a systems analyst, who were charged earlier with the same offence.

Kobusheshe directed that Namuli be arrested and taken to court on February 12.

The four allegedly configured MTN cards, which they sold to subscribers who would then make free calls.

They were also charged with theft of sh1b, the proceeds from the free calls.

They allegedly committed the offence between November 2009 and January this year.

Kobusheshe granted bail to Muhoozi and Kibuuka, who were ordered to pay sh1m each, deposit their car logbooks, passports and land titles in court.

Benio was remanded in Luzira Prison because he did not have sureties.

Under the Penal Code, a person found guilty of conspiracy to defraud is liable to seven years in prison, while the offence of stealing money carries a prison term of 10 years.
