The army has dismissed as baseless claims that it is among the top three human rights abusers.
The 15th annual report released by the Uganda Human Rights Commission today also accused the army of crimes of sexual violence.
These were reported during the LRA war.
The report says the UPDF officers reportedly raped male and female abductees to punish and intimidate populations resisting their orders.
The Army Political Commissar Lt Col. Felix Kulaigye says all these claims are baseless.
The report has again ranked the police highest on the list of human rights abusers.
According the commission chairperson, Meddy Kaggwa, there was a general reduction in the number of complaints against government institutions.
He says complaints against the police reduced from 458 in 2011 to 346 in 2012.
Following in second place are complaints against individuals at 190 cases, while the UPDF comes third with 85.
177 and 66 complaints of torture were recorded against the police and UPDF respectively.
While 209 and 12 were cases of detention beyond the stipulated 48 hours against the police and UPDF respectively.
The commission also noted an increase in cases of violation against the Internal Security Organ from 0 in 2011 to 7 in 2012.
