The International Police (Interpol) has issued a red notice for four Ugandans over allegations of fraud in Bostwana.

Mr Mark Bbale Adams, 28, Mr Mubaraka Kimuli, 31, Mr Abbey Kiberu Mubiru, 30, and Mr Abaasi Kalyango, 27, are suspected to be residents of Kampala.
The Interpol request, however, does not show the date and how much money was fraudulently obtained by the wanted Ugandans.

An Interpol red notice seeks “the location and arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradite or take similar lawful action”. Interpol is appealing to anyone who has information regarding the whereabouts of these men to inform the nearest police.

The suspects bring to 10 the number of Ugandans wanted by different authorities through Interpol.

Others on red notice are Lord Resistance Army leader, Joseph Kony and his deputies, Vincent Otti, Dominic Ongwen and Okot Odhiambo.

The Allied Democratic Forces commander, Jamil Mukulu, is also still on the Interpol wanted list on charges of terrorism, while Gloria Kyembabazi is wanted for a range of offences including embezzlement and fraud.

Asked whether they knew about the Interpol request, Uganda’s Interpol and Peace Support Director, Mr Asan Kasingye, said he needed some time “to check their records”.
The deputy police spokesperson, Mr Vincent Ssekate, said if the suspects are indeed wanted by Interpol, the police would cooperate.
