DPP asks court to fix hearing date in Finnish national's murder
Thomas Terasvouri a Finnish National was found lying dead in his hotel room and later on a postmortem report revealed that he had died of drugs.

The Director of Public Prosecutions has asked Buganda Road court to fix a hearing date in a case where five people are charged with causing the death of a Finnish national at Pearl of Africa Hotel in Nakasero.

State Prosecutor Viola Tusingiwire says that the police have completed inquiries into the matter and witnesses were ready to give evidence against the accused.


The five include a senior intelligence officer with the Internal Security Organisation(ISO) Apollo Kyabagye, Fatuma Kabagambe, Caroline Alinda, a special hire driver Nasif Walusimbi and the deceased's girlfriend; Faridah Naggayi.

These were on the 22nd, March 2018, charged with manslaughter, forgery, trafficking in drugs and conspiracy to commit a felony.


Prosecution led by Viola Tusingwire states that on the 6th/February 2018 at Pearl of Africa Hotel in Nakasero, the five connived to kill Thomas Juha Petteri Terasvouri by allegedly administering narcotics to him which they sneaked into his hotel room.

Terasvouri was found lying dead in his Hotel room and later on a   postmortem report revealed that he had died of drugs.


The suspects who have since denied the charges are also charged with the forgery of a letter purported to have been written and signed by  ISO Director General, Col.Kaka Bagyenda.
