The former chief justice, Bart Katureebe, has warned Judges and other judicial officers to desist from bullying and intimidating lawyers and court witnesses during court sessions.
Katureebe made the remarks while presiding over a dinner for his guests who had come to bid him farewell at his official home in Nakasero yesterday.
Katureebe expressed concern that this practice of embarrassing court users has ruined the career of many lawyers and influenced court rulings.
He said most of the court users especially lawyers and witnesses always get embarrassed over small matters adding that if they are to dispense meaningful justice, such habits must stop.
On his part, his successor, Chief Justice Alfonso Owiny Dollo agreed with Katureebe saying that there is no need for judicial officers to embarrass court users.
He applauded Katureebe for the great work done and the achievements especially streamlining the administration of judiciary during his time of service.END.
