All magistrates attached to the Anti-Corruption Court have been re deployed.
The Judiciary’s move is in-light of the recent Constitutional Court ruling that suspended the court’s operations.
The affected magistrates include Chief Magistrate Irene Akankwasa, Grade One Magistrates Sarah Langa, Dorothy Lwanga and Micheal Lagara.
The Principal Judge Yorokamu Bamwine has written to the Chief Registrar of Courts saying the magistrates will be handling corruption cases arising out of their areas of jurisdiction.
He says this will continue until the Constitutional Court finally determines the pending petition.
Earlier this month, three Constitutional Court judges led by the acting deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma stayed all criminal cases before the Anti-Corruption Court after a city lawyer challenged its composition.
