EU demands the Release of Ugandan Author

The European Union has demanded the immediate release of Ugandan author Kakwenza Rukirabashaija. He was re-arrested again on Tuesday just minutes after being released on bail by a Kampala court. In a statement issued Wednesday, the EU and embassies of its member states in Uganda said the author’s arrest is “a clear disrespect to the rule of law and the right of a Ugandan citizen to a fair trial.” The European Union, as well as the diplomatic missions of Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Norway in Uganda, have all condemned the regime’s human rights abuses.
