  • Description

    At a press conference in New York, the President of Uganda, Field Marshal Idi Amin, said the British teacher, Dennis Hills, was working for a secret United States government security force when he was arrested in Uganda.

    President Amin was in New York after addressing the United Nations General Assembly.

    The President said that Dennis Hills, whom he had sentenced to death for calling him village tyrant, had told him in a confidential letter that he had been forced to write comments about the Ugandan President.

    President Amin said Hills had been forced by the British Government to write derogatory things about Uganda.

    He also said that Hills had confessed to having worked for a secret U.S. organisation that wanted to eliminate "some brilliant, strong leader like me".

    President Amin also called on Israel to withdraw from those areas of Arab countries occupied since the 1967 Middle East War.

    The President said that the Arab countries had no choice but to go to war against Israel to "regain their land taken from them by the force of arms".

    This film is serviced with part of President Amin's answers to questions at the press conference. The President speaks in English, a transcript of which appears below.
