Press Releases & Events Documentation

The RLP issues press releases on numerous topics with some being published in the Ugandan dailies

"....In considering whether the Rolling Stone's publication of alleged homosexuals' names, addresses and preferred social hang-outs constituted a violation of the applicant's constitutional rights, the Court, ruled that: 1) The motion is not about homosexuality per se, but '...it is about fundamental rights and freedoms,' in particular about whether 'the publication infringed the rights of the applicants or threatened to do so'. 2) The jurisdiction of Article 50 (1) of the Constitution is dual in nature, in that it extends not just to any person 'whose fundamental rights or other rights or freedoms have been infringed in the first place,' but also to 'persons whose fundamental rights or other rights or freedoms are threatened to be infringed.' ......".

A press release by the CSCHRCL - Human Rights Day (10 December 2009).  “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” is the bold opening statement of Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted on December 10, 1948 to try and ensure that the horrors of World War II - most notably the de-liberate extermination of Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals by the Nazis - would never again be visited on anybody. It is extremely ironic that the chosen theme for this year’s International Human Rights Day in Uganda is ‘Em-brace Diversity, End Discrimination in Uganda’ when parliament is currently considering a bill that rejects diversity and promotes discrimination.
