Uganda AG "confused"

The Attorney General of Uganda says he's confused by the divergent rulings on whether the country's military courts may trial civilians. This report quotes longtime Global Military Justice Reform contributor Ronald Naluwairo:

Makerere University Law don Dr. Ronald Naluwayiro, who is also an expert on military justice and human rights was seemingly not convinced by the argument raised by the Attorney General. “But he is the Attorney General and he knows the hierarchy of courts. The Supreme Court decision takes precedent. The two decisions by courts have to be seen in light of Uganda’s international obligations. I draw your attention on the reports of the African Commission of Human and People’s Rights” said Dr. Naluwayiro, who has published several articles about military courts and human rights.
