The judiciary has condemned the attempts by unscrupulous individuals who it said want to meddle in its affairs.
According to the judiciary, on June 20, 2022, the staff at Soroti High Court received a suspicious package with a warning letter addressed to the resident Judge, the assistant registrar, counsel and plaintiffs in a court case now a subject of police investigations.
In a statement, the institution said this act of cowardice is an unwarranted indirect affront on the independence of the Judiciary which is protected by the Constitution.
Jameson Karemani, Public Relations Officer, at the judiciary said whoever wants to threaten judicial officers and the courts with a view of derailing justice should be brought to book and condemned.
He said the law provides for an appellate system for redress by aggrieved parties and as such there is no need to intimidate judicial officers as they dispense justice. END
