Amin: Disregard for Human Rights
DISREGARD FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.
Public perceptions that the government was either a party to various acts of violence or had knowledge of them were reinforced by official indifference in cases involving violence meted out to civilians by the security forces. Amin told his soldiers that the gun was their bread winner, their mother, their father, their great protector. Many who heard his speech thought he was giving licence to the security forces to get whatever they wanted from civilians by violence.
