TORTURE AND STATE SECURITY INSTITUTIONS

By Wasswa Deo

Uganda Human Rights Commission is working very closely with Ministry of Justice and constitutional affairs to ensure that the victims of torture who have been awarded compensations by tribunal are expeditiously compensated.

Katebarirwe Amoti Wa Irumba, the acting chairperson, Uganda Human Right commission, says the compensation was delayed by shortage of funds from the resource envelope of the government because of the February presidential campaigns.

He says, most of the complaints that the Uganda human rights commission receives are against the state security institutions
