Court of Appeal has commenced five days of a criminal appeals

The Court of Appeal has commenced five days of a criminal appeals session at Mbarara High Court.

The session will hear cases of 36 appellants convicted of manslaughter, murder, aggravated defilement, aggravated robbery, and rape. Some of the criminal appeals were filed from as far back as 2011.

The Court of Appeal session will be handled by Justices; Fredrick Egonda-Ntende, Catherine Bamugemereire and Christopher Madrama.

Justice Fredrick Egonda-Ntende the chairperson of the Coram says the rights of the appellants have been violated since the Judiciary can’t speed up the hearing of the cases.

He says the delay puts the nation to shame for being unable to live up to the standard requirements of the constitution.
