Katureebe bans lawyers from discussing Amama case in media


The CJ made the communication Monday afternoon while presiding over the pre-hearing session of the Supreme Court in Kololo Kampala.

“I thought a presidential petition was a serious thing.  I’m hearing lawyers discussing the petition in media.  This must stop,” he said.

The CJ said discussing court issues in public creates bias and intimidates lawyers.

He warned the affected lawyers to cease these media engagements regarding a case which is before court.

“Take back positions during the sessions,” he urged members of the press.

He further cautioned media not to turn court into a theatre for drama.

“The necessary consequences will apply if this continues,” warned the Chief Justice.

The hearing of Mbabazi’s amended petition has now been set for Monday March 14, 2016.
