Innocent Nalubowa Caroline, 28, one of the suspects charged in the Arua treason case before Gulu Magistrate Court on Thursday fainted and collapsed after standing nearly for two hours in the dock.

She was later carried and taken to the other empty court room where she was given first aid and  placed to rest on the room.

In an interview with Journalists outside the Court premises, Nalubowa said that she was beaten and kicked by security people on the chest during the Arua by Election Violence.

She also revealed that she cannot stand for long as she is still experiencing heavy chest pain and she is still on treatment.

Nalubowa who said she hails from Kampala but was dealing in shoe business in Arua by last year also revealed that she is now out of business trying to foot her bills.
