Commission of Inquiry into Violations of Human Rights in Uganda (1986)

The Commission of Inquiry into Violations of Human Rights investigated human rights abuses committed in Uganda from October 1962, when the country gained independence, to January 1986, when Yoweri Museveni came to power. Ugandan Justice Minister Joseph Nyamihana Mulenga established the Commission as part of a government attempt to improve the country's human rights reputation after the rule of Idi Amin (1971 - 1979) and Milton Obote (1980 - 1985).
