Detectives at the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) in Kampala on Friday arrested the deputy Director of the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) Taban Idi Amin over fraud.
Taban who was grilled for hours is alleged to have participated in fraud that saw some American nationals lose USD $ 8 million (about 29 billion), the CID spokesperson, Charles Twiine, said.
Taban, a son to former president Idi Amin (RIP), was in October last year appointed ISO deputy director by President Museveni after sacking the former ISO boss, Col Kaka Bagyenda, and replacing him with Lt Col Charles Oluka on October 8.
Taban’s appointment sparked off confusing in the security circles after the senior presidential adviser on military matters, Lt Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso, last October said Maj Emmy Katabazi was the new ISO deputy director.
