This was an application in which the applicant sought for release on bail pending the disposal of her appeal, against conviction and sentence on the count of embezzlement.
The applicant deponed that she had applied for a copy of proceedings which had not been availed by the Court of Appeal, that she was a single mother and guardian of three children.
Counsel for the applicant submitted that the applicant had complied with High Court bail terms, had a permanent place of aboard in Uganda, had substantial sureties, and that the appeal was not frivolous and had a reasonable chance of success.
Counsel for the respondent argued in objection that the application had been brought under a wrong law, and that, the application being based on a second appeal, it could only be granted on a point of law. He further argued that the applicant’s appeal had no chance of success, since it was based on grounds of improper evaluation of evidence, which was not a point of law.
She prayed for court to dismiss the application on those and other grounds.
