Idi Amin's son charged over immigration centre attack
The son of late dictator Idi Amin has been charged with attacking a man hours before he was due to be deported from Britain.
Faisal Wangita, 28, is accused of being one of eight men who beat another deportee at an immigration centre.
The 23-year-old victim, from South America, suffered multiple injuries in the attack at the Colnbrook Detention Centre, near Heathrow Airport.
Unemployed Wangita, of north London, travelled to England from Uganda with his mother as a child.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Wangita is one of eight men charged with grievous bodily harm and false imprisonment.
Former Ugandan president Amin had more than 40 officially-recorded children from seven wives.
Up to 400,000 people are believed to have been killed under his rule in the east African state between 1971 and 1979.
Amin fled to Libya and Iraq before finally settling in Saudi Arabia, where he died of multiple organ failure in 2003.
The group will all appear in custody at Isleworth Crown Court on May 18.
The other seven defendants are: Adilson De Oliveira, 23, Julio Odjoma, 27, Robert Williams, 25, Omar Haji-Ali, 30, Ahmed Musse, 27, Steven Kadima, 22, and Marc Deborge, 33.
