Uganda Constitutional Court case put off

The Constitutional Court of Uganda has put off until March 6, 2017 consideration of a petition by a member of Parliament challenging the power of the general court-martial to try civilians, according to this account. The case had been assigned to a single judge, but will now be heard by a full bench.

Human rights jurisprudence strongly disfavors the trial of civilians by military courts.
