Human rights defenders have asked the 10 th parliament to expedite the passing of human rights defenders protection bill 2016 which is still in the draft form.
According to Sylvia Namubiru,the executive director Legal Aid Service Provider Network (LASPN),many human rights defenders are under constant threats because there’s no due credible law to shield them.
She says parliament must move fast enough to expedite the passing of this bill if human rights are to be upheld in Uganda.
The bill if passed will provide for the protection and promotion of human rights defenders through the establishment of the human rights defenders council
