Increased Threats to Freedom of Expression in Uganda
May 2, 2010

This 60-page report documents multiple recent cases in which Ugandan journalists have faced increasing threats from government officials and NRM party members, intimidation, harassment, and in some instances, government-inspired criminal charges. The cases involved journalists who had reported critically about the government, presented opposing political views, or exposed state wrongdoing, such as corruption or failure to investigate crimes, particularly in rural areas. Furthermore, Uganda's media regulatory system is partisan and does not tolerate criticism of the governing party.
