It is also aimed at amending the definitions of “terrorism” and “acts of terrorism” to include the international aspects envisaged by the convention; and for related purposes.
It also seeks to provide a suite of measures which are specifically designed to strengthen and improve Uganda’s counter-terrorism legislative framework to comply with Uganda’s international obligations and respond to terrorism threats.
