Three organizations- Abantu for Development Uganda, Publish what you pay Uganda, Global Commons on Defence and Restoration on National Resources Oil Uganda, have logged a statutory notice on their intention to sue parliament should it fail to reverse the oil bills recently
The notice submitted by Aggrey Mugisha on behalf of the three organizations and 10,000 other people was received by the office of
the clerk to parliament.
According to the notice, the plaintiff and other CSOs submitted their petition to parliament demanding amendment of different sections of the bills but parliament ignored them, thereby giving the minister of energy full powers to grant and revoke oil licenses and also negotiate petroleum agreements.
Mugisha says if Parliament does not recall the recently passed oil bills for amendments before the president assents to them, the plaintiff will not hesitate suing Parliament.
