  • Justice Centers Uganda represents the 30 death row convicts
High Court in Kampala has started reducing the sentences of remaining 30 death row convicts.
These include four women and 26 men who have been in custody for over 10 years after their conviction.
The development comes after Supreme Court ruled against convicting suspects to death penalty without hearing their side first thus ordered the return of all pending death row appeal cases to the High Court.
So far ten of the 30 convicts have been slashed to at least 20 years.
