CJI Misra to address media soon

CJI Misra to address media soon

"At the outset, we four would like to thank each one of you for responding on a very short notice".

In 2016, Justice Nagarjuna Reddy of the high court of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana courted controversy when 61 Rajya Sabha members moved a petition for his impeachment on charges of misusing his position to "victimise" a "dalit" Judge.

Justice Chelameshwar in the press conference said he and his colleagues had compelling reasons to come out into the open because he did not want people of this country to say that the four judges had sold their souls by not speaking out against the injustices they presided over.

Without disclosing what they were upset about, Justice Chelameswar said a lot of things had been written in the media and it was not a political controversy.

"Since all our efforts failed". When reporters asked whether it was related to the case of a lower court judge B. Loya, who died in December 2014 while hearing a high-profile trial, one of the four judges said "yes". "It left us with no choice but to communicate to the nation to take care of this institution".

"This is an extraordinary event in the history of any nation, more particularly this nation, and an extraordinary event in the institution of judiciary".

"This is an extraordinary event and it is with no pleasure we are doing this..."

In 2015, Justice Chelameswar was the lone dissenter, when he said that the Collegium system must go, for an exclusive authority to appoint judges was not the only means for an independent judiciary. "This must be guarded against at all costs", they wrote in the letter.

"Looking at its own flaws is the first step to correcting an institution, to deepening true constitutional democracy", said Karuna Nundy, a Supreme Court lawyer. Justice Gogoi said: "nobody is breaking the rank".

On Friday, Justice Gogoi told journalists that the unprecedented press conference was prompted by the death of trial court Judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya.

"We are sorry to say that, of late, the twin rules mentioned above have not been strictly adhered to". We tried to collectively tell CJI Dipak Misra that certain things in the administration of the SC is not in order.

However, Justice R.S. Sodhi (retd) did not agree with the way the four judges chose to express their disagreement with the CJI. We wanted a particular thing to be done in a particular manner. Rather, their charge is that by breaking from the traditional procedures for allocating cases - which heavily emphasise seniority - he is allowing what they called "questions on the integrity of the institution" to fester.

Asked if the chief justice should be impeached, Chelameswar said, "That's for the nation to decide". Sources in the law ministry said Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had not briefed the prime minister in this regard.

Opposition parties today demanded a "thorough probe" into issues flagged by four Supreme Court judges over its functioning, prompting a strong reaction from the ruling BJP that accused its rivals of "politicising internal matters" of the judiciary. "It is to be hoped all such issues will be resolved keeping in mind the principles of democratic functioning and transparency regarding the highest court of the land", the party's Politburo said in a statement.
