LMM(86)52 Pre-Trial Remands In Custody-Uganda's Experience

The problem of persons held in custody in our prisons awaiting trial can be attributed to a variety of factors. These include the shortage of well-trained and experienced man-power in the Judiciary, the Department of Public Prosecutions as well as in the Criminal Investigations Department of the Police Force. The relatively slow process of criminal trials occasioned by technical procedural requirements for the reception of evidence, coupled with the need to respect and observe the rights of the parties, such as the right to bail and adjournment, are also instrumental in bringing about this problem.
