Instead, Thadeus reduced the figure to shs1.2bn, saying the case was filed “out of misconception.”

City lawyer Andrew Kasirye represented the fund.

The registrar further said Byamugisha had earlier received shs233m from NSSF to prepare for a civil appeal No. 15 of 2009 but was struck from the list of lawyers who argued the case in court.

While NSSF executive director, Richard Byarugaba hailed the court’s decision as a landmark ruling that has enabled the fund survive a loss of shs30bn to lawyers, Byamugisha has appealed the ruling.

“Our client is wholly dissatisfied with the ruling on the taxation and intends to appeal to a judge of the High Court. We request for the proceedings and the ruling to enable us file the appeal,” Byamugisha’s lawyers MMAKS Advocates appealed the ruling on Tuesday.

Sources at NSSF say it was feared at the time that Byamugisha’s arguments would not the Fund win the protracted case against Alcon.

It was not until the appointment of Byarugaba and Corporation Secretary, David Nambale, that the case was turned around in favour of the fund.

Lawyers that represented NSSF to its day of victory were Nambale, Godfrey Sserunkuuma Lule, Barnabas Tumusingize and Brenda Ntambirweki with the support of Principal State Attorney Patricia Mutesi.
