PRESS STATEMENT ON THE SEARCH OF THE NATION MEDIA GROUP ANDPEPPER PUBLICATIONS
 
Members of the Uganda Police Force this morning cordoned off the premises of theNation Media Group in Namuwongo and Pepper Publications in Namanve. The FMradio stations - K FM and Dembe FM were taken off-air.
 
This is to reassure Ugandans that the government is not interfering with press freedom.
 
The search of the above premises comes on the heels of the utterances made by Gen.David Sejusa, aka Tinyefuza which have caused undue excitement. This is beingtreated as a matter of national security.
 
However the police is working within the parameters of the law, specifically, section 37of the Penal Code which bars the publication of information prejudicial to nationalsecurity.The Police went through the due legal process and secured a court order 
 –
which wasissued by a court of competent jurisdiction (Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court).There is therefore nothing untoward or surprising about the procedures used, as greatcare has been taken to follow the law to the letter. For the time being the premises inquestion are being treated as crime scenes.
 
 As soon as investigations are over 
 –
which will be very soon as police is under instructions to handle the matter expeditiously
 –
the premises will be duly handed backto the owners.
