Sorry, wrong courtroom

A civilian's challenge to the jurisdiction of Uganda's court-martial has been dismissed because it was filed with the High Court's criminal division rather than its civil division. Details here. Presumably the case will now be refiled in the proper court.

Uganda regularly prosecutes civilians in courts-martial, notwithstanding human rights jurisprudence that strongly disfavors the practice.
