Another challenge to Uganda's use of courts-martial to try civilians

“I am a civilian and, therefore, my trial at General Court Martial is defective, illegal in law, unlawful, pre-emptive and usurped the powers of the minister under the Firearms Act, Cap. 299 to determine the ammunitions of war thereby violating the Constitution by presiding over non-existent charges.”

Abdallah Kitatta, concerning his High Court of Uganda lawsuit to block his trial by general court-martial, as reported here. He's a civilian.
