He further claimed that under article 120 (3), the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has no control over decisions of the Court Martial and therefore without the DPP there can't be a fair trial in the Court Martial.

Responding to the allegations, the Uganda People's Defence Force (UPDF) deputy spokesman, Maj Henry Obbo, said the army is only implementing what parliament passed.

"If the MP is calling for reforms, it should be Parliament to do that. But why do they want to politicize security matters by speaking now?" he asked.

He stated that the army is interested in those who were arrested or captured in possession of firearms, those who attacked the military with firearms and those who used firearms to kill armed forces because that is what the law says.

"Section 119 of the 2005 UPDF Act says that a civilian can be tried in a Court Marital if found in illegal possession of arms, ammunition or any other stores that are ordinarily a monopoly of armed forces or if a civilian abets a member of defence forces to commit a service offence," Obbo told New Vision.

Meanwhile, Obbo said suspects (about 170) who attacked Rwenzori region on July 5 will be screened tomorrow to isolate those to be court-martialled while others will be prosecuted in regular courts.
