KAMPALA - Principal Judge Yorokamu Bamwine has said that the judiciary is in the process of introducing plea bargain practice directions in criminal justice mainly to decongest prisons.
One of the objectives of the plea bargain directions is to enhance efficiency of the criminal justice system for the orderly, predictable, uniform, consistent and timely resolution of criminal matters.
