Judges have condemned military against beating and torturing journalists on duty. They argued that its against human rights and abuse of their right to freedom of information and attack to journalism work.

“The recent incidence where journalists were tortured is unconditional and an attack to media freedom and human rights. We strongly condemn the barbaric attack and culprits should be brought to book,”Kasule said.

He advised journalists to use their Umbrella association to take the military officers to court to receive  immediate  compensation.

Remmy Kasule was speaking at the launch of a book titled ‘The rule of law in Uganda‘ authored by Associate Professor Francis Bwengye of Nkumba University at Sheraton Hotel.

The book gives a clear guide to law training and best practices to Advocates on current laws and practical solution to address challenges like rampant fraud in legal profession.

Kasule urged  academicians to conduct research and get involved in current legal proceedings to ensure laws are reviewed to favor society needs.

“The legal academia should come out of being theoretical and knowledge based but he is critical on current legal cases this will help address ethical values faced by legal profession in society,”he said.

” Law schools like iuiu, makerere university, Uganda Christian university, Nkumba University and Gulu University should contribute to research and law reforms,” Kasule added.

Deputy Chief Justice Richard Buteera challenged members of the legal fraternity to open up for regional and international legal expertise to benefit from legal fees saying Uganda has excellent lawyers but losing out because they thick inwardly.

“lawyers must expand their scope of legal service by offering expertise on regional and international level to attract billions from legal profession,”
