Whatever action taken by C.J. High court of judicature at Allahabad must come in public domain.

 

 
New Delhi: Lawyer Prashant Bhushan has sought the
intervention of Allahabad high court chief justice D.Y. Chandrachud in a case
related to alleged unauthorised transfer from provident fund (PF) accounts of
certain people to members of the Uttar Pradesh judiciary.
Undoubtedly
matter is serious as concerned with serious allegation of corruption specially
on judicial members. Here this question arises that whether the letter of
whistle blower citizen/Learned advocate of Apex court was taken seriously by
the chief justice of High court of judicature at Allahabad.
The credibility of the judiciary is at stake, Bhushan told
Chandrachud in a letter released to the press on Monday
. Really the matter is serious and chief justice if really loves
public spirited approaches ,then must welcome whole heartedly such public
spirited approach and this is liability of chief justice to set cat in the cage
.
The case concerns a Central Bureau of Investigation probe—launched
on the orders of the Supreme Court in September 2008—into an alleged PF scam in
Ghaziabad, in which several judges, court staff and around 10 service providers
were chargesheeted by the CBI, according to Bhushan’s letter.
Which shows that large number of judicial staffs
are indulged in unfair dealings and accountable public functionaries have
sympathy to them why ? Whether such acts of accountable public functionaries
are not lowering the dignity of courts and judiciary as one of the vital organs
of this largest democracy in the world.
Bhushan said that most of the service providers had either been
given a clean chit or pardoned by a special CBI judge after they made full
disclosures of evidence that they provided services like luxury cabs, mobiles,
cutlery, dresses and photography to the judges. However, these service
providers were now being asked to deposit the money they had in their accounts
through cheques credited by an audit committee.
Instead of sending the
wrongdoers behind the bar more focus is to harass the service providers who
told the truth to the apex investigating agency. Whether it is justified and in
the interest of justice. It is the obligatory duty of courts to shield the
witnesses but unfortunately nothing could be articulated about the way of
dealings which is throwing the credibility of courts and judiciary at the
nadir.
Bhushan
claimed that the committee includes a judge, who in that administrative role
directed the service providers to pay up. But the same judge, in a judicial
role, was trying the cases arising out of the CBI probe.
He asked Chandrachud “to see that the process of justice is not
subverted in this case that involves a scam involving the judiciary”.
Hon’ble Sirs ,whether free and fair trial can be expected if such
practice will continue. Whether in the name of independence of judiciary such
bad game may be allowed to play . Whether our public and accountable public
functionaries may remain mute spectators of entire episode. Whether such acts
are not tarnishing the image of judiciary.
A
copy of this letter was also been given to chief justice of India, H.L. Dattu.

  1. Hon'ble Sirs ,whether free and fair trial can be expected if such practice will continue. Whether in the name of independence of judiciary such bad game may be allowed to play . Whether our public and accountable public functionaries may remain mute spectators of entire episode. Whether such acts are not tarnishing the image of judiciary.

  2. Whether independence of judiciary means no transparency and accountability in the working of public authority. Undoubtedly we have protected our judicial members but we never thought about the interest of litigants if corrupt judicial member is processing the case. Every one knoWS that how much corruption is in judiciary? Whatever protection is provided to our judicial members is to protect them from Executive legislature and bureaucracy but it seems that this august act only promoting corruption in the system.

    Undoubtedly our main enemy in India is growing corruption in the government machinery which is the cause of all the myseries being faced by the common people of the country. At any cost we have to curb the corruption from government machinery including Judiciary, bureaucrts and legislators thanks.
