Retired Supreme Court judge George Kanyeihamba has asked the Government to set up a commission of inquiry into the Judiciary if it is to fight corruption and abuse of office in the sector.
"I know of reports of corrupt judicial officers whose names were submitted to the Government for disciplinary action but no action was taken," Kanyeihamba said.
He made the remarks while addressing law practitioners during a meeting at the Uganda Law Society headquarters in Kampala.
Kanyeihamba noted that 60 law firms were implicated in forgery of court orders on land matters and corruption.
"Some of the advocates dealing in land transactions have been presenting forged court orders to the office of lands with an intention of obtaining land titles," he said.
He, however, declined to mention the firms implicated.
He called upon the Uganda Law Society to name and ashame the culprits, saying this would act as a deterrent to others.
Kanyeihamba cited Swaziland, Kenya and Tanzania, among the countries where commissions of inquiry were successful in the fight against corruption and abuse of office in the Judiciary.
Uganda Law Society president James Mukasa Sebugenyi condemned the fraud.
