Mr Francis Butagira says because of money, most lawyers twist cases when they are aware of the truth.
...
Mr Francis Butagira, who is also a diplomat, was on Wednesday addressing students and academic staff of Bishop Stuart University, Mbarara during the inauguration of a Bachelor of Laws programme at the university campus in Kakoba Division.
"You are not taught law in order to use it to be crooks but to be honest and sincere in administering justice," Mr Butagira said.
"But because of the love for money, some lawyers take on any case at whatever cost even when someone tells you the truth, you want to turn it the other way round," he added.
He said he served and rose to where he is today because of his high ethical standards.
"Someone comes to a lawyer and confesses having killed a person but wants you to defend him as not having committed that offence; and you go ahead, this is outrageous," Mr Butagira warned.
He told the pioneer law students that their obligation is to promote justice not to make money.
