KAMPALA: A Ugandan preacher and three police officers have been arrested over the alleged rape of a Latvian woman at a home in the country’s capital, Kampala.
The deputy police spokesperson Nabakka Claire said on Tuesday that the victim was also defrauded of her money and had her passport confiscated.
It’s unclear if the suspects have commented on the charges.
The preacher had invited the victim to tour the country and she arrived about a month ago, a police statement said.
The three officers who handled the case when the victim filed a complaint at Jinja Road police station face charges of irregular conduct.
The victim accuses them of locking her up in a cell and forcing her to sign a statement acknowledging receipt of payment of all her money and withdrawal of the case against the preacher.
The police’s Criminal Investigations Department has now taken over the case and asked anyone with similar complaints against the preacher to report to them.
