Legal Fraternity Welcomes Terror Case Verdict

The Uganda Law Society has welcomed the judgment and sentences handed to the terror convicts by High Court Judge Alfonse Owiny-Dolo

Court yesterday handed life sentences to 5 of the convicts and one to two years community service and 50 years each to the remaining 2.
Speaking at the launch of the Network of Public Interest Lawyers, the society president Francis Gimara dismissed claims of loopholes in the justice system saying the court followed due processes and that the judge acted on the evidence adduced before him.

Gimara however, said they are investigating reports of the re-arrest of the 5 acquitted suspects.
