The case against Ministers Sam Kutesa, John Nassasira and Mwesigwa Rukutana has been adjourned until August this year.
The ministers face charges of abuse of office and causing financial loss from an unauthorized expenditure of 14 billion shillings ahead of the 2007 Common Heads of Government Meeting.
The three Kutesa, Nasasira and Rukutana are alleged to have passed the decision for government to fully fund the construction of drive ways, parking areas and a marina at Munyonyo Speke Resort Hotel, without the mandate of cabinet.
The long adjournment has been granted to allow time for the Constitutional Court to decide on the petition filed by the ministers, on whether or not the IGG can conduct prosecution when his office is not fully constituted.
Their lawyers argued that the powers of the Inspectorate lie with the IGG and his 2 deputies and not with the IGG as an individual.
The trio appeared in court personally and were represented by a team of 6 lawyers led senior counsel Joseph Byamugisha, while the IGG’s office was represented by Sydney Asubo.
They appeared before magistrate Sarah Langa who adjourned the case until 21st August for mention.
