Their bail applications hearings came up before grade one magistrate Siena Owemugisha, however, state prosecutor, Patricia Chingtho objected to their release on grounds that they are most likely to abscond bail because they are foreigners and that their arrest was difficult after they had jumped police bond.
According to Chingitho, the accused Chinese reached the extent of forging Covid 19 test forms indicating that they are positive in order to be given police bond but they were found to be negative after a second test was done at Nsambya police Barracks Health centre.
The prosecution further explained that the accused persons are also being investigated on other offences of aggravated robbery and murder by shooting.
They have been ordered to return to court on the 28th of this month when the court will deliver its ruling.
The two are jointly charged with a Ugandan accountant Robinah Nassuna who voluntarily wants to plead guilty and become a prosecution witness for a lesser punishment.
The prosecution alleges that the trio and others still at large on November 27th 2020 in Kampala forged a Special Resolution and amended memorandum and articles of association of Hongsen International company Ltd and uttered it to the Uganda Registration Service Bureau.
