Please see appeal by his daughter hereunder.
My father, Robert (Bob) Scanlon went murderedormissing (MoM?) in Uganda in 1977. This was during the Idi Amin years. I just wonder does any one out there have any information which might help to discover what happened to him and why?
My brother said he was told petrol was poured on my father in a room at the state research bureaux and he was set on fire. My brother did not feel that this was the truth.

Very little has been written about Amin’s victims, their lives, and the lives of their families who still endure the pain that Amin’s brutality inflicted on them.

Idi Amin with Archbishop Luwum. Note the pistol at the side of Amin. He was said to have used it shortly afterwards to murder the Archbishop.
Bishop Luwum was tortured and killed by Amin and Minawa Farouk at Nakasero State Research Bureau torture chambers in 1977.
We forgave Amin, says Luwum family
This Month (February 2012) marked 34 years since the death of Archbishop Janan Luwum, who was allegedly murdered by State Research Bureau, an intelligence outfit under President Idi Amin’s regime. His son, Ben Okello Luwum, the former minister of Lands from 1986 to 1990, Auditor General and now a private accountant, talked to Risdel Kasasira about the death of his father.
1. Could your father have done things differently to avoid death or having confrontations with Idi Amin and to what extent should religious leaders get involved in politics?
Amin and his men were terrible people. Just seeing you drive a beautiful car; you are dead. If his soldiers liked your house, they would kill you. So, I don’t know the kind of answer I can give but I know he handled it well because Amin would kill for any reason.
There was no rule of law. Every religious leader is like I and you. They can comment about political issues whenever they get an opportunity because like any other Uganda, they should ask questions about political decisions in the country.

Killed in 1973:
Wanume Kibedi Nkutu's nephew wrote this to Amin: "SHABAN NKUTU, my own uncle, was abducted from his home at Jinja in January 1973. Local citizens put v.p a determined fight to try and save him, but they were overwhelmed by the gang of assassins. The following day you ordered a statement to be put out saying that Nkutu had run away, and that anybody who saw him should inform the police. At the time of Nkutu's public abduction I was in Ghana leading my country's delegation to the OAU Liberation Committee of which I was outgoing Ch.airman. When I heard of the officia, statement alleging that Nkutu had "run away", I knew he must have been liquidated because, as every Ugandan knew, that was the kind of statement you liked to issue to cover up the work of your assassins.
