Peace Corps Reopens Program in Liberia

After an absence of nearly two decades, experienced Volunteers will be serving in the country through a program called Peace Corps Response. President Bush discussed the possibility of Peace Corps’ return to Liberia in October 18, 2007 during an Oval Office meeting with Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. President Bush said, “The Peace Corps has been in touch with our State Department and the Liberia folks and it looks like we're going to start moving some teams pretty quickly back into Liberia.”

Uganda- Attacks on Justice 2005

Uganda- Attacks on Justice 2005

The administration of justice lacks both human and financial resources to enable it to function properly. The judiciary is generally independent, although it is constantly subjected to attacks from the executive. In addition, corruption within the judiciary is rampant and widespread and damages its public perception. In an effort to combat this, accountability mechanisms have been set up to enhance judicial integrity. Advocates' freedom of expression has been restricted and access to justice remains limited. Counter-terrorism legislation has undermined respect for the right to a fair trial.
