Lantos Foundation Statement on Bobi Wine

The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice, a leading non-profit advocating for human dignity around the world, has released the following statement via Facebook on the continuing persecution against Bobi Wine:

When a Parliamentarian and potential Presidential opponent is kept at his home by the police (who can be presumed to act under orders from the sitting President), that is by all definitions “house arrest” and a serious violation of freedom. Uganda must adhere to the rule of law and allow for peaceful protests, open elections, and justice for all its people. Bobi Wine has become the voice of a generation, and trying to silence him by cancelling concerts and keeping him isolated will not thwart his dedication to the betterment of Uganda.
