Student or Learner
could you please tell me what "professional self-interest" means in the following sentence:
The evidence confirms that Mrs. XX and her subordinate Mr. XY, the legal guardian of my father, perceive the professional self-interest of your subordinates as a guarantee of their professional immunity as well as immunity in case of a criminal action against them.
Thank you very much.
More context would be helpful, but it seems to say that the subordinates are seen as consciously behaving in a way that is going to prevent some action taken against them for something they have done/are doing.
