Item description for Offences Against the Person: Homicides and Non-fatal Assaults in Uganda (Fountain Series in Law and Business Studies) by Lillian Tibatemwa-Ekirikubinza...
This work provides comprehensive coverage of the substantive case law on homicide and non-fatal assaults in Uganda. It is based on judicial interpretation of the Uganda Penal Code: the principal criminal legislation in the country. Using records of the Ugandan courts as well as the pre-independence English court records, the book details cases when important judgements have set precedents for future decisions. The book further discusses how wider policy issues of contemporary society such as gender, human rights, children's rights, constitutionalism and HIV/AIDS are impacting on criminal law and informing law reform from a human rights' perspective. Contents: ingredients common to all homicides; the offence of murder; attempted murder; the death penalty and murder; the defence of diminished responsibility; suicide; voluntary manslaughter; self-defence and murder; homicides related to infants and unborn children; involuntary manslaughter; non-fatal assaults; bibliography; and index of cases. Lillian Tibatemwa-Ekirikubinza is Associate Professor of Law at Makerere University, Uganda.
