The Uganda Law Society, tadalafil http://compuaprende.com/components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/activity.wall.post.php a body that brings together more than 2500 lawyers from all around the country has issued a statement condemning yesterday’s alleged raids on the chambers of lawyers representing Hon Amama Mbabazi in a petition challenging the just concluded presidential elections.

The ULS President Mrs. Ruth Sebatindira in the statement also expressed concern that some lawyers in the petition were being directly attacked by government agencies.

She said, dosage “We condemn the break-ins of lawyers’ offices and all kinds of harassment of lawyers representing the clients that they represent.”

The ULS President noted that the attacks were against the petitioner’s constitutional right to a fair trial which includes the right to counsel.

“Lawyers must have access to all relevant information, files and documents in their possession or control in sufficient time to enable them provide effective legal assistance to their client.”

Mbabazi’s lawyers claim that the raids on their offices were spearheaded by Uganda Police, though the latter denies the charges.

Some government officials have come out with claims that the raids were an “inside job,” meant to tarnish the image of the respondents President Yoweri Museveni and the Electoral Commission.

Mrs Sebatindira’s statement follows another strong-worded dossier which she issued last month condemning the manner in which the February elections were conducted.

The document created a rift amongst some members of ULS, including senior executive council members who downrightly disowned it and condemned the President for acting outside her powers.
