The High Court Execution and Bailiffs Division (EBD) has relocated to the spacious Crusader house for easy management. EBD has been operating from the Judiciary Headquarters in Kampala since inception in 2012.
In a statement issued this morning the Division Registrar, Eliasa Omar Kisawuzi, says, " We wish to inform court users and the General Public that the Execution and Bailiffs Division is now located at Crusader House. We moved and have fully set up Court and ready to serve the public”.
He explains that the court now occupies the spacious 3rd and 4th Floors of Crusader House compared to the small offices they have been operating from at the Judiciary headquarters. He notes that the move is meant to improve efficiency and better management of the registry.
Vincent Mugabo, the Judiciary Senior Communications Officer, says the Division has since its inception grappled with service delivery and management of the registry due to limited space.
Asked on how much the new office will cost them in rent, Mugabo said he wasn't sure of the exact amount and needed time to consult the Judiciary Permanent Secretary.
EBD was established by an administrative circular issued by the Principle Judge to handle executions of High Court and Magistrate's Courts within Kampala. The Division has three judges who are led by Duncan Gaswaga.
The others are Patricia Basaza and Paul Gadenya Wolimbwa. The Division also has two Deputy Registrars Deo Nizeyimana and Baker Muhendo Rwatooro. A recent Stakeholders Meeting about EBD's Operations recommended it is gazette properly and its mandate expanded.
The Stakeholders who include the Judicial Service Commission want the jurisdictions of the Court to be widened to handle assets recovery management arising from criminal matters as well as executions of decisions from the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
