Four Indian Supreme Court judges see democracy in danger

Four Indian Supreme Court judges see democracy in danger

"We have seen a lot of wise men but we don't want wise men to tell us later after 20 years that the four of us have sold our souls". Unfortunately, we couldn't convince him.

"Since all our efforts failed". It is very unusual for serving SC Judges to interact with the media. They also revealed a letter sent to the chief justice a few month ago. This type of thing has never happened before.

Justice Gogoi, who is in line to succeed chief justice Misra in October, said, "It's a discharge of debt to the nation which we have done".

# "Four of us are convinced, the democracy will not survive".

While crying ourselves hoarse over the opaqueness with which the Collegium operates, can we, at the same time, criticize them for attempting to be transparent about how the institution is functioning?

The other judges present at the press conference were justices Ranjan Gogoi, M B Lokur and Kurian Joseph.

A number of reactions from leading personalities in the country were reported.

The statement earnestly appealed that the Full Court of the Supreme Court should take up the issues raised by the four judges and find solutions that are consistent with the traditions and conventions of the judiciary pointed out by them and that will preserve the independence of the judiciary. I don't think this damage can ever be repaired. "This will have severe repercussions on judiciary".

"The honourable judges have specifically highlighted two issues: (1) The long silence of the Government of India to the Memorandum of Procedure that was finalised by the Supreme Court and (2) the assignment of cases in the Supreme Court to what is described as "selectively to the benches of their preference without any rational basis for such assignment". "Democracy can not survive without an independent judiciary", the judge added.

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

In theory, Misra can recommend someone else over Gogoi, especially if he claims the latter's behaviour has affected the image of the Supreme Court. "Citizens are entitled to expect the free and fair administration of justice", wrote Dave.

Senior advocate Dushyant Dave, representing the Bombay Lawyers Association, told the bench that the Bombay High Court was seized of the matter and the bench should not hear the plea. We have placed this in front of the people.

More than a week before the four judges of the apex court took to the press to say that the court's administration needed an overhaul, parliamentarians across political parties came together in the lower house to criticise the judiciary for interfering in the political domain. He said they should have sought redress within the system. We must respect them. When at 11 am two other judges abruptly ended proceedings in their courts, a senior official of the Supreme Court rushed into the courtroom of the CJI, who was until then unaware of the impending storm.

The four "rebel" judges reportedly came up with their observation as they went public with complaints against India's chief justice, Dipak Misra. "Most important take away 'when national interest is at stake ordinary rules of business do not apply".

At the news conference, all the judges rubbished questions on whether they have broken ranks and said that they will start doing things which they do.

"This is a black day for Judiciary". The judges had resented against the listing of PIL on Loya before Court No. 10 comprising Justices Arun Mishra and MM Shantanagoudar.
