SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

Senior Advocate Mr. Shanti Bhushan files affidavit in support of Prashant Bhushan in the Contempt case in Supreme Court

Senior Advocate Mr Shanti Bhushan filed an application for being impleaded as Respondents in the Contempt of Court proceedings against his son Mr Prashant Bhushan. In his application, he has stated “[O]ut of these [16 previous Chief Justices], eight were definitely corrupt, six were definitely honest and about the remaining two, a definite opinion cannot be expressed.” He has also placed on record a list of corrupt judges in a sealed cover.

CONTEMPT CASE SHANTI BHUSHAN APPLICATION BEFORE SUPREME COURT

Prashant Bhushan files additional affidavit in Supreme Court on Contempt of Court Proceedings

The Controversy began when Prashant gave an interview in Tehalka and expressed that out of the last 16 to 17 Chief Justices, half have been corrupt. Mr Harish Salve, who was acting as Amicus Curiae in one of the mattersin Supreme Court filed a Contempt of Court Petition in the Supreme Court. Court issued notice to Prashant and Prashant filed his first reply to this. In this reply, he gave some instances of corrupt practices of some of the previous Chief Justices. Prashant filed second affidavit to place on record some facts, material and evidence which he was aware of when he made the statement about the former Chief Justices, so as to dispel any impression that his statements were baseless or made with reckless disregard to the truth. However, Prashant reiterates that in his statement about half of the last 16-17 Chief Justices being corrupt, he “certainly did not intend to paint the entire judiciary or the entire Supreme Court with the same brush”.

    Article 19 of the constitution of India conferred on every citizen of the country the right to express thier opinions freely.That is what Prashant Bhushan did.Corruption need not be finacial.But doing undue favour to a corrupt bureacrat and indulging in judicial burial of his disproportionate assets will also amount to corruption.It is more dangerous than finacial corruption.It is a uphill task and almost impossible to prove corruption in judiciary.We shall have to by the doctrine that there will be no smoke without fire.People say that thre is more corruption in AP High court than in any other place.That is just comonsense and prudence only.Shree Shanthi Bhusan,the most celebrated advocate in the country will never allow Prashanth Bhushan to faulter

    Regarding corruption in judiciary I am the one who knows than many others. I had exposed corruption & scandals which were found correct by investigation of legislative assembly committee, inquiry officer / an IAS officer (Chie Vigilance officer) based on which a Secretary to Government of India was removed from post / placed on compulsory wait. I have filed many cases i.e. 2 cases before Hon’ble Supreme court of India, 9 cases before Hon’ble High Courts, one case before Hon’ble SAT, 6 cases before Hon’ble CAT PB of India, 3 cases before Hon’ble District court, about 15 cases before Hon’ble Consumer court (District, state and National Commission) and thus have the opportunity of closely observing the Judges.As in many cases I have to plead myself. I have also filed about 80 RTIA applications most of these were also placed before Center Information Commission (CIC) and information / certified copy documents received were placed before judges and I have received their comments. Based on my personal observation I conclude that many of judges are not extraordinary personalities but they are a common man of society and they are behaving like that only.
    On the issue of placing affidavit before Hon’ble Supreme Court in line I had discussed with Shri Prashant Bhushan Ji but it could not be materialized. Now I am again thinking to proceed on the same line. Why there are only 25 affidavits? There will now be many more.

    Mr. Prashant Bhushan is fighting against corruption specially judiciary and if he cannot win I don’t hope there is anybody who can fight against corruption in judiciary.

    Sir, In Madhya Pradesh, the High Court, Jabalpur had conducted the HJS Exam 2011, Total advocate appeared as approx 1650 in prelims and 226 candidate eligible for mains, Main Exam conduct on 28-08-2011 and result declared on 14-09-2011, in a span of 17 days the result declare & No candidate were found suitable for interview. Mere perusal of result its seems ambiguity. Candidate’s had applied the RTI application for information from High Court.
    Sir, One newspaper Danik Patrika, Bhopal edition has publish a news that ” Deshbhar Ke Vakil Fail”. It is a wrong comments and insult of advocate’s belongs to whole India. Please guide for lawful action against such act.
    Regards
