In 2013, Glaser was arrested on allegations of sexually abusing minors adopted at this home.  The minors aged between 12 and 14, claimed that Glaser had repeatedly defiled them since 2007.

He was however acquitted by the High Court due to lack of evidence.

On Saturday, detectives from the Criminal Investigations Department headquarters in Kibuli led by Rosemary Nalubega raided Glaser's home and cordoned it off.

However, Glaser wasn't at the facility at the time police raid.

His wife Ingrid Hehns and 15 children under his care were taken to Kireka, at the Special Investigations Unit for interrogation. 

Police sources at Kalangala Police Station who preferred anonymity say that Glaser could have been tipped off by police officers about the raid.

Kalangala District Probation Officer Nkumbi Willy says that Ssese Humanitarian Services has been operating illegally without a registration certificate.
