Oil case on the disclosure of Production sharing Agreements, 2012

On March 28, 2012, AFIEGO with support from Open Society Justice Initiative and other CSOs that included Navigators for Development Association (NAVODA), Buliisa Initiative for Rural Development (BIRUDA) and World Voices Uganda (WVU) under Publish What You Pay Uganda-Bunyoro Chapter presented a case to High Court at Nakawa demanding for the disclosure of oil Production Sharing Agreement (PSAs) and a declaration that these are public documents which every citizen should have a right of access.The case was dismissed; however this caused the tabling of PSAs to parliament, though there were restrictions on accessibility of these PSAs.
