According to [URN] Maj Samuel Maserejje and Capt AB Katushabe could work as prosecutors at the General Court Martial whenever needed.
Maj Maserejje was one of the prosecutors in the last term of the court but has since been dropped, alongside Capt Ambrose Baguma, Col James Rubahika, Lt Col Henry Serugo, and Lt Col Frank Tumwesigye.
