The Head of European Union Delegation in Uganda, Attilio Pacifici says the EU is not supporting potentially subversive activities in Uganda.
Ambassador Pacifici says such claims have come up with in the government questioning the EU support to civil society actors in areas of human rights and governance.
Speaking at a dialogue on Human Rights at Kampala Serena Hotel, Ambassador Pacific said the claims are baseless and unfounded.
He was one of the panelists at a dialogue on the European Union’s contribution to Human Rights in Uganda – Other panelists included Chief Justice, Bert Katureebe, former Ethics Minister, Miria Matembe, Lillian Adriko, CEO Uganda Association of Women Lawyers (FIDA-U) and Senior Presidential Advisor Political Affairs, David Mafabi.
Pacifici said the EU in Uganda supports activities aimed at implementation of the human rights issues as par the agreement. Part of the support according to Pacifici goes to the civil society and the rest goes to government in form of budget support. The EU has been part of the biggest funders to the Justice, Law and order sector in Uganda.
