Supreme Court will deliver its verdict today on the contempt case against senior advocate Prashant Bhushan. Earlier, the Supreme Court had reserved its decision on August 25 on the sentence to Prashant Bhushan. The apex court sought opinion from Attorney General KK Venugopal on the issue of sentencing Prashant Bhushan. On which Venugopal said that Prashant Bhushan should be warned and left.
Earlier, Prashant Bhushan refused to apologize to the Supreme Court for two tweets that were derogatory to the judiciary. Explain that in contempt of court, they can be punished with imprisonment for a maximum period of six months or fine of two thousand rupees or both.
The Supreme Court on August 25 could not succeed in getting apology from lawyer Prashant Bhushan over the objectionable comments made by him about the Supreme Court and the judges. The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its verdict on the conviction of Bhushan, convicted in contempt, regretting that the judges are condemned. His family is humiliated and he cannot even speak.
At the same time, Bhushan remained adamant that his remarks were not going to hurt the dignity of the Supreme Court. Bhushan’s lawyer Rajiv Dhawan said that the court should show great heart to face severe criticism. The court should put an end to the matter without introducing any punishment or warning or advocacy, while introducing Statesmanship. This matter should be put to rest by giving the general message of being a little restrained in the future.
