Retired High Court judge Wilson Masalu Musene dead

Retired High court judge Wilson Masalu Musene is dead.

Justice Musene officially retired on March 6, 2021 after clocking 65 years. However, the Constitution allowed him three more extra months to wind up any pending chamber work.

But his retirement was marred with controversy when he was sent on forced leave by principal judge Dr Flavian Zeija three months before the official retirement date.
In August 2020, the United States government, through the US Department of Treasury, imposed financial sanctions and visa restrictions on Justice Musene alongside retired Justice Moses Mukiibi, advocate Dorah Mirembe and her husband, Patrick Ecobu. 

They were indicted for their alleged involvement in activities that victimised young children in a corrupt adoption scheme.

The US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) in its 2020 statement noted that the trio participated in a scam that saw young children removed from their families in Uganda and placed into a corrupt adoption network, aided by the facilitation of officials.
