The case in which the Lesbian, Gay , Bisexual Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community is suing the attorney general and the ethics and integrity minister for closing a leadership and training workshop in February last year, started one and a half hours late with both the judge and the plaintiffs attorney coming in late.
The judge said it was impossible to make a ruling today since it was late. He went on inquire if Sexual Minorities Uganda was a registered organization saying it would have made a lot of difference in the verdict.
“The terrain of this case would have been different. It would have made a hell of a difference if SMUG was registered. The objectives of the organization holding this workshop would have been with in the organization, duties, mandate and capacity. So the case would go either so bad or very well for SMUG depending on the registration.”
An ‘ex gay’ Georgina was in the gathering and speculation is that he was present to testify for the defense.
Both attorneys agreed that the case be adjourned to 11thth march 2013 at 10am to present them ample time to give highlights of their affidavit submissions and allow rulling by the honorable judge.
