Threats To Judicial Officers Condemned By Judiciary

The judiciary has revealed that there are some unscrupulous individuals intending to interfere with the body’s affairs. However, it condemned these attempts.

The judiciary revealed that on June 20th, 2022, the Soroti High Court staff received a suspicious-looking package from an unknown person.

It had a warning letter attached to it addressed to the resident Judge, the assistant registrar, and counsel. The package also had plaintiffs in a court case that is currently a subject of police investigation.

The institution released a statement that called this an act of cowardice. It further said the act is an unwarranted indirect attack on their independence. This is protected by the Constitution.

“Article 128 of the Constitution provides that no person or authority shall interfere with the courts or judicial officers in the exercise of their judicial functions. They should leave the Judiciary to exercise its mandate to adjudicate,” the statement read in part.

The Public Relations Officer at the judiciary, Jameson Karemani said authorities should bring to book and condemn those threatening judicial officers and the court to derail justice.

He also talked about the provision in the law for an appellate system for redress by aggrieved parties. Therefore, as such, there is no need to intimidate judicial officers as they dispense justice.

“We reassure court users and the public at large that the judiciary remains committed to administering justice to all without ill will, fear or favour,” he said.
