foreign leaders "What is for certain is that the Western officials are lost lack clarity of vision and are feeling the failure of their plots (toward Syria)" he said "The only goal that was realized . is the destruction of much infrastructure in Syria shedding lots of blood" Now the Western governments are paying the price of their failed policy in Syria he said because terrorism has been exported to them as well as a huge influx of refugees Assad blasted Western countries accusing them of fuelling terrorism by supporting rebel groups and ultimately the refugee crisis "In reality they are the biggest contributor for reaching this stage by supporting terrorism and imposing a siege on Syria" he said in reference to Western countries "They attack terrorism but they are terrorists in their policies either by imposing the siege of by supporting the terrorists" Over a half million people have crossed the Mediterranean to Europe this year more than double the figure for all of 2014 most of whom are Syrians European countries have grappled with the crisis described as the worst refugee crisis since World War II AP We saw a huge fuss being made when the NDA government opposed the appointment of Gopal Subramanium as a Supreme Court judge We saw the Chief Justice of India (CJI) RM Lodha vow that he would not allow the independence of the judiciary to be compromised in any way But CJI Lodha will need to read this blog by his former brother judge in the Supreme Court Markandey Katju’s blog and figure out whether this independence was always intact Justice Katju who is currently chairman of the Press Council has levelled allegations that cannot but show the higher judiciary in poor light The only interpretation one can give to his claims is that the CJI of 2004 was willing to bow to political pressure to keep the UPA in power even going to the extent of allowing an allegedly corrupt judge to remain in office and ultimately even promoting him Katju’s revelations raise some serious questions on the independence of the judiciary This is what Katju wrote about the antecedents of this judge of the Madras High Court: “There was an Additional Judge of the Madras High Court against whom there were several allegations of corruption He had been directly appointed as a District Judge in Tamil Nadu and during his career as District Judge there were as many as eight adverse entries against him recorded by various portfolio Judges of the Madras High Court But one Acting Chief Justice of Madras High Court by a single stroke of his pen deleted all those eight adverse entries and consequently he became an Additional Judge of the High Court and he was on that post when I came as Chief Justice of Madras High Court in November 2004” Justice Katju apparently asked the then CJI RC Lahoti to discontinue his services when his term expired but suspects that this judge’s political connections helped him survive He says: “That Judge had the solid support of a very important political leader of Tamil Nadu I was told that this was because while a District Judge he granted bail to that political leader” Justice Katju’s blog is likely to create a storm becauseit raises questions about the independence and/or integrity of at least three former Supreme Court chief justices – CJI RC Lahoti who okayed the extension to the additional judge in Tamil Nadu who was said to be favoured by a key UPA ally from Tamil Nadu This ally can only be the DMK for in 2004 the DMK was part of UPA-1 and critical to its survival November 2004 was when Katju became Chief Justice of the Madras High Court According to Justice Katju CJI Lahoti based on his recommendation (ie Katju’s) had originally decided to discontinue the services of the corrupt additional judge but the DMK apparently informed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that if this happened the DMK would withdraw support and the government would fall But what happens next is what makes one wonder how independent the judiciary really is Manmohan Singh began panicking but a Congress minister according to Katju assured him he would fix things and he apparently got CJI Lahoti to extend the tenure of the corrupt additional judge Then the story gets worse While CJI Lahoti merely extended the corrupt additional judge’s term by a year his successor as CJI YK Sabharwal gave him a fresh term and the man who succeeded him as CJI KG Balakrishnan made the judge’s appointment permanent and moved him to another state So in sum going by Katju’s story three CJIs were complicit in continuing confirming and promoting an allegedly corrupt judge It is worth recalling that both ex-CJIs Sabharwal and Balakrishnan have faced adverse scrutiny after they laid down office According to allegations made in open court former Law Minister Shanti Bhushan alleged that eight of 16 former CJIs were corrupt and he said he was willing to be in contempt of the court for this statement This is what legal portal Law Resource India had to say about this allegation: “After former Union Law Minister Shanti Bhushan alleged that eight of 16 former Chief Justices of India were corrupt his advocate son Prashant Bhushan filed another affidavit in the Supreme Court listing alleged instances of corruption against six of them – Justice Ranganath Mishra Justice KN Singh Justice AM Ahmadi Justice MM Punchi Justice AS Anand and Justice YK Sabharwal” As for KG Balakrishnan a former judge of the Kerala High Court Justice PK Shamsuddin (1986-93) and a Gandhian and humanitarian who served with the former CJI alleged that Balakrishnan must be probed because he (Shamsuddin) was once approached by a Bangalore-based person to act as an intermediary to a fix case in the Supreme Court” (Read this Firstpost story on this case) If Justice Katju is correct – there is no reason to suspect he has an axe to grind against three members of his own tribe who have long since retired – then it is clear that elements of the highest court are politically compromised This leads us to three conclusions: One the opaque collegium system of appointing judges to the Supreme Court and the higher courts is seriously flawed and must be reformed As I have noted before “judicial appointments are too important to be left to judicial whims or wayward government preferences We clearly need a statutory Judicial Appointments Commission to be passed by parliament as soon as possible A Bill to create one was approved by the UPA last December on the basis of a report of the Standing Committee on Law and Justice which had made suggestions on how the JAC should be constituted It called for the insertion of a new article 124A in the Constitution to define who will comprise the JAC and a 124B to define its role and job” Time to move ahead on this Two politicians should not normally be in touch with the judiciary If a Congress minister can easily get in touch with the CJI and get a judge’s appointment extended or made permanent it cannot do the judiciary’s reputation for independence any good Clearly any meeting between members of the executive and the judiciary should happen only in broad daylight and the agenda must be clearly stated and recorded Any unofficial contact between the two that goes beyond social occasions must be ipso facto deemed to be suspicious This aspect needs to be part of a code of conduct for both the executive and the judiciary Three the system is compromised because many judges are given sinecures after retirement According to this Indian Express report of July 2012 “Of the 21 judges to have retired from the Supreme Court since January 2008 18 got jobs in different government commissions and tribunals In many cases judges accepted post-retirement appointments much before they formally demitted office — at least three of them when they still had many months of service left…In many cases the names were recommended by the Chief Justice himself” One can understand using the experience of judges for running quasi-judicial organizations but if there is no cooling off period between retirement and new postings what is the guarantee these judges will be truly independent Won’t they be beholden to the government that gave them these sinecures Clearly the independence of the high judiciary is now a matter of debate It is time for major reforms Kolkata: In a rebuff to Anna Hazare who ruled out support to Mamata Banerjee in the Lok Sabha poll two days after the anti-graft activist skipped a joint rally in Delhi’s Ramlila maidan the Trinamool Congress today said that it did not need anybody to boost Banerjee’s image "Mamata Banerjee is a popular leader of the masses and she is known to all in the country She does not require any person to boost her image" TMC all-India general secretary Mukul Roy told PTITrinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee AFP He was reacting to suggestions that the TMC supremo’s national ambition had suffered a setback with Hazare ruling out support to her in the Lok Sabha election Hazare caused a huge embarrassment to Banerjee when on 12 March he did not attend a rally at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan where he was to deliver a speech along with the West Bengal chief minister Hazare had earlier declared his support to Banerjee as she agreed to implement his 17-point agenda He later said he admired Banerjee for her views on society and country but not her party As a spin-off of the Ramlila Maidan fiasco Banerjee dropped her plan to hold a rally in Ahmedabad on March 20 for the time being and decided instead to concentrate on poll campaign in five Bengal districts from 18 March Asked whether Banerjee has rescheduled her rally Roy said "It is not decided yet" Roy reiterated that the TMC would play a pivotal role in government formation after the Lok Sabha election but asserted that "there is no question of any tie-up with the BJP before or after the poll" PTI In the interview with Iran’s Khabar TV, even with a
