In mates in Nyamushekyera government prison have been tasked to ask for leniency even when one is convicted.
The call was made by the chief justice of Uganda Bart Katureebe while opening up a pre- bargaining plenary session at Nyamushekyera government prison in Bushenyi this morning.
Katureebe asked in mates to be quick in accepting offences preffered against them so as they don’t take long on remand which he said has led to influx of in mates in cells amid cheers from in mates.
The chief justice is in Western Uganda region opening up pre- bargaining court session; he will visit Rubirizi, Sheema and end up with Mbarara at the end of this week .
The principal judge Flavian Zeija highlighted to inmates the good in pre- bargaining as it better for one to accept an offence and be given a lighter sentence regardless of crime committed.
The court session of pre-bargaining will take four days and it is presided over at Nyamushekyera prison.
