How Contempt of Court in Uganda should be handled by Judicial Officers.

Contempt of court occurs where a person seeks to interfere with or subvert the court process by failing to follow orders issued by court. It is a special offense provided for by Article 28 of the Constitution and the only offence whose particulars and punishment need not be prescribed by statute. Since it’s created by article 28 it’s none derogable in the sense that no limits can be imposed on it by Parliament.
