The Supreme Court in the present day determined to go forward with prison contempt proceedings in opposition to activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan because it refused to just accept his “regret” in connection along with his 2009 assertion, allegedly scandalising the judiciary.
“Before reaching to any finding whether the statement made as to ‘corruption’ would per se amount to contempt of court, the matter is required to be heard,” a three-judge Bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra mentioned in a short order. The Bench posted the matter for additional listening to on August 17.
Meanwhile, a PIL has been filed within the prime courtroom in search of recall of SCBA President Dusyant Dave’s “senior” designation for his arguments in Bhushan’s contempt case.
