Is there a form of administrative arrest?


The Ugandan law establishes an arrest as preventive action to prevent an offence before it is committed. It is also called “prevention of offences”.

The point is to prevent someone to cause an offence, or to commit a breach of the peace or to disturb the public tranquillity, or to do any wrongful act that may probably occasion a breach of the peace or disturb the public tranquillity.
