Is it in order for a civilian to be tried in a military court?
Military courts in uganda have prosecuted many civilians for offenses under the criminal code, like murder,armed robbery but at one time the Uganda constitutional court ruled that military prosecution of civilians was unlawful. But despite this ruling,the Ugandan military courts continue to prosecute more and more civilians.
As ugandans we are concerned that many cases await trial or judgement before the military courts without a clear plan to at least secure their rights in civilian courts. Others suffer long torturous detention before trial.
