Impunity for past electoral violence is a major barrier to a free and fair election in Uganda in 2011, says the Human Rights Watch report
Impunity for past electoral violence is a major barrier to a free and fair election in Uganda in 2011, according to a summary of the Human Rights Watch (HRW) report.

The report points out that the perpetrators from all sides of the political spectrum have very rarely faced justice for crimes committed in past elections.

It further states that those responsible for earlier offences, as well as those contemplating crimes, will feel unconstrained in future elections barring new measures and increased enforcement.
