Chairman of Uganda court-martial dies; trials suspended

Major General Levi Karuhanga, chairman of the Uganda People's Defence Force standing general court-martial, has died. At the time of his death, the court had a number of cases on the docket, including one involving form intelligence chief General David Sejusa. All cases are now in suspense pending the appointment of a new chairman by the country's president, there being no arrangement under current law for anyone to assume the chairmanship automatically.
