The East African Court of Justice will on February 13 2013 deliver its ruling in 'walk to work' protests case.
The East African Law Society (EALS) sued the Uganda Government accusing it of offending human rights under Uganda's Constitution and the EAC treaty by suppressing Ugandan's rights while quelling down the riots in 2011.
The complainants contend that the actions of the agents of the Government of Uganda on various groups of citizens who decided to walk to work in protest against the high cost of fuel, transport and living were brutal.
The Attorney General of Uganda and the Secretary General of the East African Community are the respondents in the case filed by the regional bar association.
The Attorney General Peter Nyombi represented by Principal State Attorney Phillip Mwaka, asked Court to dismiss the application with costs on grounds that, the evidence adduced before the Court was sufficient and it was enough to prove any grounds raise in the reference.
