Uganda: Rule by law: Discriminatory legislation and legitimized abuses in Uganda

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 59/006/2014

The Ugandan government has enacted repressive and discriminatory legislation intensifying restrictions on free expression, association and assembly through “rule by law”. This report documents the impact of the Public Order Management Act, the Anti-Pornography Act, and the now nullified Anti-Homosexuality Act. The report calls on the Ugandan government to repeal discriminatory legislation, to ensure the government is not complicit in human rights abuses stemming from such legislation, and to protect all Ugandans, including women, LGBTI people and political activists from discrimination, harassment and violence by state and non-state actors.
