Disorder in the court
The Uganda Human Rights Commission, a governmental body created by the country's constitution, has objected to the Army's failure to comply with the decision of the Constitutional Court barring the trial of civilians by court-martial. A YouTube video of an interview with the chair of the commission -- and showing what happened when one of those accused protested in the military courtroom -- can be found here. The commission chair suggests that undue force was used, and the interviewer points out that until such time as the Constitutional Court's decision is overturned, it must be complied with.
