Uganda’s High Court in Kampala has set March 18 as the date to rule on an application seeking to quash the government’s decision to indefinitely suspend the activities of LGBT ally and human rights organisation Chapter Four Uganda. The 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 ordering Chapter Four Uganda and 54 other organisations to cease operations with immediate effect to enable the Bureau to conduct a comprehensive investigation into their operations. Chapter Four, under the leadership of award-winning human rights lawyer Nicholas Opiyo, provides strategic and non-discriminatory legal response to civil liberties abuses in Uganda. “We employ public interest litigation, research and legal analysis, and advocacy to advance social change for the protection of civil liberties and human rights,” according to Chapter Four official website.
