On the publication of the first edition of his book, the Most Corrupt British Judges, the Author, a lawyer with over fifty years experience of legal practice, sent copies of it to the Lord Chancellor, and the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police in London with formal complaints for investigations of the crimes committed by some judges. The office of the Lord Chancellor promised to carry out necessary investigations. When the Author demanded that the investigations comply with the rule of natural justice, or that they treat the complaint as withdrawn, they opted to treat the complaint as withdrawn! On receipt of the complaints, the Commissioner of Metropolitan Police appointed Senior Superintendent Coles, to investigate it. As no investigation took place, the Author made a formal application to the criminal court for a private prosecution of one of the judges, Lord Justice Morrison for the offence of perverting the course of justice. The application was not dealt with by a Magistrate as required by law but by a court clerk who rejected it on the ground that it would create a precedent, where judges would no longer judge without fear. In short, that judges were to be above the law! The author appealed to the High Court which upheld the decision of the clerk and refused to have the case heard on its merit! Though the book was published on the Internet and an affidavit affirming that the accusations in it are true, yet no notice to sue for libel was ever given. Nor was there a criminal prosecution for perjury although at the time, former Minister Jonathan Atkins, and former Chairman of the Conservative Party Lord Jeffrey Archer were prosecuted for perjury in similar circumstances.Failure to prosecute and to sue are admission that the abuse of judicial power complained of took place.

About the author (2005)

The Author was Chairman of Uganda Professional Association as well as its President of the Law Society.  In his capacity as the President of the Law Society, he so successfully organized the first  Law Conference for East and Central Africa that during the Commonwealth Conference which took place in New Delhi, India, in 1970, the Commonwealth Lawyers overwhelmingly voted  for the first Commonwealth Lawyers Conference in Africa, to be held in his country, Uganda.  However, before the Conference was held, a coup d’etat took place in his country and he remained abroad in exile.  The Conference was accordingly cancelled. 

In December 1985 the United Nations organized African Jurists Conference in Nairobi and  invited the Attorney Generals from East and Central Africa to represent their countries in it.  Uganda was the exception.  The Author, a practicing lawyer, was invited to epresent Uganda.  In the sixties, the Author led a delegation of  the Uganda Law Society in USA organized Peace Through Law  opened by  by USA Chief Justice Warren.

He has written several books. Three of his books on corruption are entitled Mr. Minister, Coups and Corruption in Nigeria, and the Libel of the Century: The Jeffrey Archer Scandal.  Jeffrey Archer was a leading member of the Conservative Party pf U.K and a close friend of Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher.  He had sex with prostitute Monica Coghlan  but brought a libel case against the  newspaper for reporting it.  He won the case.  The Author wrote a book claiming that Archer perjured himself and that the summing up by the judge to the jury was bias in favor of Archer.  Fourteen years after the book was written, Jeffrey Archer was convicted of perjury in the libel case and imprisoned.

Various newspapers in Uganda have praised the Author for exposing corruption:   The Equator: “A thorn in the flesh’ of the corrupt elements in society” Munnansi:   “The torch bearer searching for incidences of the corrupt usage of power’  The People:  “A person who never shrinks from describing a character, however grotesque, or an incident, however chilly”.  In London, Rev. Douglas Dean described the Author as “a disinterested artist who should be permitted wide latitude to expose mercilessly the disagreeable aspects of life”.
