    One should not forget the history...

    This Was The Gravest Crisis Of Indian Judiciary, When A PM Made A Pliant Judge The CJI - Not What Happened Now




    A heavy blow has been struck at the independence and integrity of the Supreme Court which the Constitution-makers intended to be the guardian of the Consti­tution and the rule of law. By superseding three senior Judges, the Prime Minister has declared that hereafter the appointment of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is to be a matter of political patronage.

    In the statement issued by distinguished jurists including Mr M. C. Setalvad, Mr M. C. Chagla, Mr J. C. Shah and Mr N. A. Palkhivala, it has been pointed out that ''the Government of India's decision to supersede three seniormost and highly respected Judges of the Supreme Court is not only unprecedented in the nearly quarter century of the Court’s experience, but is a mani­fest attempt to undermine the Court's independence. It cannot be denied that the three Judges were passed over only because their rulings displeased the Government. There could be no two opinions regarding the calibre and total suitability of each of the three superseded Judges, two of them have already served with distinction as Chief Justices of High Courts."

    The Law Minister, Mr H. R. Gokhale, refuted the charge of political patronage and main­tained that in making the appoint­ment the Executive was justified by constitutional power and pro­priety. He said that under Article 124, the President had absolute right to appoint the Chief Justice. The statement is altogether ridiculous. The Presi­dent had nothing to do with it. The conventions of parliamentary democracy have been so rigidly interpreted in India that the Presi­dent has been deprived of all his powers of veto and even advice. While relying on this convention which goes directly against the letter of the Constitution, Mr Gokhale has relied upon that let­ter to destroy the convention.

    Taking note of the concerns raised by four senior judges led by Justice J Chelameswar over assigning of cases, the bar body suggested that even the PILs listed for hearing on January 15 be transferred from other benches to either the bench headed by the CJI or benches led by the members of the collegium.
    “Another resolution taken was that all PIL matters must be taken by CJI or must be assigned to the collegium of 5 judges. This must be done in order to maintain credibility of Supreme Court,” Singh said.

    The public questioning of the Supreme Court administration by four senior judges of the apex court, a first in the history of the country, is not a judicial crisis, according to KK Venugopal, the Attorney General of India.

    "I don't think one should elevate it to a level that it will affect the confidence of the people in the institution," Venugopal, who is the chief legal adviser to the Indian government, told BloombergQuint in an interview.

    Venugopal said that it would been “far more appropriate” if the judges followed procedure and placed their concerns before the full court. “If that had been done, the whole thing would've been done quietly, resolved by a majority and that would've been the end of the matter,” he said. Now the media has been examining every little detail with great intensity and that will erode people's confidence in the highest judicial body of the country, he added.


    The Attorney General expressed hope that the four judges, "men of wisdom and great integrity", would put the institution above everything else, patch up and settle everything within a couple of days.

    SC judges' revolt: BJP accuses Congress of politicising judiciary, says people are watching party expose itself

    The BJP's reaction came after Congress called a press conference and read out a statement calling the comments made by four Supreme Court judges "extremely disturbing" and appealed to the full Supreme Court to find solutions to preserve the independence of the judiciary.

    Congress President Rahul Gandhi demanded that the PIL concerning the death of Judge BH Loya, who was hearing the Sohrabuddin fake shootout case, should be entrusted to the senior-most judges of the Supreme Court who should ensure a thorough and impartial investigation of the case by an independent SIT.

    But Patra, slamming the Congress, said that Indian democracy "has shown the mirror" to the party, and termed its attempt "to fish (for) an opportunity where none existed politically" wrong.

    "None of us should politicise issues of judiciary and this is an advice to Congress party. The people of this country are watching Congress party exposing itself," he added

    Senior lawyers in India say the country’s supreme court is in crisis over the case of a former high court judge accused of offering to influence decisions for cash.

    Events in the case in recent days have led to extraordinary accusations of misconduct against India’s most senior judge and fierce criticism of the supreme court, considered one of the country’s most upstanding institutions.


    Critics accuse the Indian chief justice, Dipak Misra, of intervening to ensure only judges of his choice can hear a sensitive case relating to corruption involving a retired high court judge.


    The retired judge, IM Quddusi, is accused of conspiring to bribe supreme court justices in a case over which Misra himself presided. It is not known which justices, if any, were allegedly offered bribes.


    Quddusi was arrested in September along with five others accused of involvement in the alleged judicial bribery ring. Investigators have not alleged Misra or any other supreme court justice behaved corruptly.


    Neither Quddusi nor Misra have commented publicly on the allegations.


    Questions over how to handle the case have sparked an uproar in the ordinarily sombre institution. The controversy is centred on a petition filed in the supreme court by a legal reform group, asking for the Quddusi case to be handled by an independent investigative team.

    Among the issues raised by the petitioners was a possible likelihood of bias if Misra was to consider a case with some connection, however tenuous, to him or other judges.

    The petition was first lodged in the court last Wednesday and listed for hearing at the end of the week before the court’s second most senior justice, Jasti Chelameswar.

    Then, reportedly at Misra’s behest, this decision was overturned, and the case was allocated to a different bench.

    It is better for all concerned to exercise maximum restrain and try to resolve the issue

    SC CRISIS SENDS LEGAL FRATERNITY INTO HUDDLE


    3 Bar bodies offer mediation, urge political parties to refrain from ‘politicising’ issue

    A day after the storm raised by the four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court as all eyes await Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra’s next move, the country’s top Bar associations on Saturday called emergency meetings and offered to mediate between the two sides to resolve the differences “internally” even as they asked political parties to refrain from politicising the situation. The associations — Bar Council of India (BCI), Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) and Supreme Court Advocates on Record Association (SCAORA) — even passed unanimous resolutions to this effect.
    ………………………………….
    ………………………………….

    On behalf of Bar Council of India, I request him and other political parties to not politicise the matter.” The BCI resolved that “no political party or leader should take undue advantage of the situation”.

    Even the SCBA swung into action and resolved to hold a meeting with the CJI on the issue. Senior advocate and SCBA president Vikas Singh shared a unanimous resolution adopted by the lawyers’ body that they wished to share with CJI and with other judges as well. It resolved that the differences aired by the four judges are a matter of “grave concern” and should be resolved immediately by holding of a Full Court sitting. As a step intended to resolve the crisis, Singh suggested that beginning from Monday, the listing of all PILs as a matter of rule be heard by either CJI or the senior most judges constituting the SC Collegium.

    Even the SCAORA issued a resolution urging the judges of the highest court to exercise restraint and resolves issues internally as the events witnessed on Friday generated pain and concern as it “tarnished” the reputation and image of the judiciary.
