Uganda: Writer and academic Stella Nyanzi sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment

PEN Austria joins the call of PEN International and PEN Uganda for Dr. Nyanzi’s release and for her sentence to be overturned, and for the Computer Misuse Act (2011), which has been used to clamp down on dissent, to be repealed or amended to ensure full conformity with Uganda’s freedom of expression obligations under international law.
