HAM Vs DTB COURT CASE: HAM ENT APPLIES FOR ARREST OF SCHEDULED JUDGEMENT ON REQUEST FOR FAIR HEARING

3 min read

Hamis Enterprises has filled application for arrest of scheduled Judgement on request for fair hearing of his application for judgement on admission by Diamond Trust Bank as provided by the constitution of Uganda

“The  Applicants   be  granted  leave  to  adduce  additional evidence from the Central Bank of Kenya to elucidate and substantiate the illegality committed by the 2nd Respondent in respect  of  the  disputed  credit  transactions   between  the   “Applicant and the 2nd Respondent, the subject of this Appeal.

KAMPALA UGANDA| Following the Summons by supreme court on June 8, 2023 for Pre-hearing of the application for judgement on admission of illegalities not substantially addressed by court of appeal where unfortunately outside normal court procedure, Hon. Justice Elizabeth Musoke shocked court by saying the Chief Justice instructed her not to entertain the application but rather inform the applicants that delivery of judgement in the main appeal is on June 13, 2023 which is contrary to article 28 of the constitution which provides for the right to a fair, speedy and public hearing to all Ugandans by an independent and impartial court or tribunal established by law and equally contrary to article 44(c) of the constitution provides that Notwithstanding anything in the Constitution, there shall be no derogation from enjoyment of the right to fair hearing. So every Ugandan has the right to be heard.

This compelled Ham Ent through its lawyers to instantly file an application for arrest of the scheduled judgement as it arouse out of bias and perhaps the honourable court could not determine the main appeal before hearing and determining a miscellaneous  application for judgement based on the bank’s admission to committing illegalities both in high court and the Supreme Court.
