Violations of human rights and the rule of law in Uganda

This study of violations of human rights and the rule of law in Uganda has been compiled by the ICJ  in response to a number of requests coming from both Ugandans and non-Ugandans, in 1971-1974. 

The study deals with the events since the military coup on January 25, 1971, when General Idi Amin Dada came to power. It is divided into three parts. Part I deals with the expulsion of the Asians from Uganda; Part II deals with the political and legal structure within which the violations of human rights have occurred; Part III presents a chronological account of the reign of terror that has taken place in Uganda since January 1971.

The supplement is an open letter to General Idi Amin from Wanume Kibedi and an addendum to the open letter.
