High Court delays ruling on closure of Ugandan gay ally group Chapter Four

03/24/2022 | Erasing 76 Crimes

Uganda’s High Court in Kampala has postponed ruling on an application seeking to quash the government’s decision to indefinitely suspend the activities of Chapter Four Uganda, an LGBT ally and human rights organisation. The ruling had been slated for March 18, but the court has told Chapter Four that the ruling on the matter was not ready. A new date is yet to be fixed. This ruling is to be delivered by email due to Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings, according to Chapter Four lawyers. The case follows an August 2021 decision by the Uganda Non-Government Organisation Bureau, which ordered Chapter Four Uganda and 54 other organisations to cease operations immediately to enable the Bureau to conduct a comprehensive investigation into their operations.
