Again! 25 EU MPs resurrect plan for sanctions against Museveni government ahead of swearing-in ceremony

A total of 25 Members of the European Union Parliament (MEPs) have petitioned Joseph Borell, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, to slap sanctions against top Museveni government and security officials over the detention of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform (NUP) supporters.

The MEPs, including Nicolae Stefanitu from Romania, want sanctions against individual security and government officials engaged in human rights violations.

Stefanitu and his colleagues want Borrel, who doubles as the EU Commission Vice President, to “take action regarding the deteriorating human rights situation in Uganda.”

“Sanctions for all responsible for human rights violations should be imposed under the new EU Magnitsky Act.”

This is not the first time EU MEPs are calling for sanctions.

In February 2021, they passed a resolution condemning Museveni’s government over alleged human rights violations.

Museveni hit back, telling off the EU delegation in Uganda during a meeting at State House.
