‘Stop treating Court orders as mere white papers with blank ink’, ULS president cautions security organs

The newly elected President of Uganda Law Society Bernard Oundo has asked security organs to stop disrespecting court orders because it threatens the independence of the Judiciary.

While giving his speech at the 5th Memorial Lecture of Chief Justice Benedicto Kiwanuka on Thursday at the High Court building, Oundo said that Judicial Independence is an integral component of any progressive democracy and it involves both individual and institutional relationships.

He noted that the individual independence of a Judge in such matters as security of tenure and institutional independence of the court is key in the struggle to build democracy and rule of law in any country.
