Court Denies Male Mabirizi Request for Release



The High Court in Kampala has quashed an application for the temporary release of Lawyer Male Mabirizi from prison, where he was committed after arrest by police to serve an 18 months imprisonment over contempt of court.

Justice Boniface Wamala dismissed the application on grounds that a similar ruling had already been ordered by the Court of Appeal. This decision couldn’t be overturned by the High Court.

He further added that the application was overtaken by events.
