UGANDA PRISONS ACCUSE THE JUDICIARY OF MAKING THE BAIL FEES UN AFFORDABLE FOR THE POOR TO ACCESS JUSTICE.

The Uganda prisons service has accused the judiciary of making the bail fees unaffordable for the poor to access justice.

While speaking at the report dubbed justice delayed is justice denied in Kampala, the prison service spokesperson Frank Baine said that the bail should be intended to protect a right to bail but not to defeat it.

Baine adds that people have now resorted to mob justice because they have lost trust in police and the judiciary.
