NEW DELHI: Attorney General Okay Okay Venugopal has refused to grant sanction to provoke contempt proceedings towards former Chief Justice of India (CJI) and Rajya Sabha lawmaker Ranjan Gogoi for his alleged statements towards the apex judiciary.
Activist Saket Gokhale had sought consent, a situation precedent for initiating prison contempt proceedings, of the top-most legislation officer to provoke the case towards the previous CJI who had reportedly stated at an occasion that the judiciary is “ramshackled” and it’s fairly unlikely for an individual to get a well timed verdict.
“I had the occasion to watch the entirety of the interview. It is obvious that all that has been said was good for the institution and will not any manner scandalise the court or lower its authority in the eyes of law,” Venugopal stated in his letter to the activist, denying consent for initiating the proceedings.
Venugopal stated although ex-CJI’s statements had been robust, however they mirrored his views on the ills of the judiciary.
The plea, looking for consent to provoke contempt proceedings towards the nominated Rajya Sabha MP, had particularly referred to the statements of Justice Gogoi who had stated, “You want a 5 trillion dollar economy but you have a ramshackled judiciary…if you were to go to court, you would only be washing your dirty linen in court. You won’t get a verdict. I have no hesitation in saying it.”
Under the Contempt of Courts Act and the foundations, the consent of legal professional normal or the solicitor normal is required for submitting a prison contempt case by a non-public particular person.
