Meeting with the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Uganda

In March 2018 the CWAG AAP team held a meeting with the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Uganda. The meeting took place at the offices of the DPP in Kampala. It was chaired by Mr. Mike J Chibita, the institutional head and was attended by the Assistant Inspector General and head of legal of the Uganda Police Force AIGP Erasmus Turahukwa and the CWAG AAP team by Mr. John Edozie together with Ms.Caroline Mbabazi and Mr. Chuks Unamba Oparah.

Mr. Chibita said that his office was keen on equipping its members to come to terms with tackling modern crime including transnational crimes such as human trafficking among others. In particular he mentioned the difficulty in prosecuting these crimes and the standard of investigation and evidence that are required to bring them to conclusion given their relatively new status and the multi-jurisdictional nature of the offence.
