DPP denies being used to fight political wars

The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Richard Butera has denied allegations by the President of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Col. Kiiza Besigye that he is biased.

Besigye told an opposition gathering on weekend in Jinja that parliament should pass a vote of no-confidence against Butera because the DPP is fond of imposing charges against opposition members on the directive of president Museveni/government.

Butera, however, has told news men in Kampala that he is not being used by president Museveni to fight political wars. Butera says that he imposes charges against opposition members who might have committed crimes.

He says that calls by Besigye to parliament to pass a vote of no confidence against him have no grounds. Besigye says that on several occasions Butera labeled charges against him including that of rape.
