The law firm which obtained a court order this week, http://circleofliferediscovery.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3.2.1/class.json-api-endpoints.php blocking Parliament from discussing or debating the controversial Presidential Handshake has apologized.

Chandia and D.W Advocates, http://chesapeakecatsanddogs.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php who represented Electoral Commission legal officer Eric Sabiiti in the application, http://deltadiner.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-links-list-table.php today proceeded to Parliament and publicly presented their apology to the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga in the presence of the media.

The Court Order issued by Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma on Monday had earlier yesterday kicked up dust at Parliament as the Speaker suspended all the House activities until the order is vacated.

At Parliament, Counsel Alex Candia said his firm was sorry for the implications of the order, which was branded by the speaker as “stupid” and an attack on the rights of members of parliament as well as the tenets of democracy.

“We came to apologize to the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and the nation. We did not have enough information on the subject,” he said, adding “We regret our court actions and we are sorry.”

Earlier yesterday, the petitioner Eric Sabiiti’s employers the Electoral Commission had resolved to take what an official described as a “firm disciplinary action” against him.

In a meeting that sat on Tuesday morning at the EC offices, the officials were reportedly unhappy that a staff would use the electoral body’s name to take legal action without consulting management.
