The contempt case filed against senior advocate Prashant Bhushan in 2009 was heard in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Attorney General KK Venugopal in the Supreme Court said that the media commenting on the matters under consideration is like an attempt to influence the judges.
He said that this would result in contempt of court. According to the Senior Advocate, the Supreme Court has already clarified that it is contempt of the court to try to give any kind of response to the matter under consideration. Venugopal presently commented strongly on the state of the media and urged the court to investigate the role of the media.
The Attorney General said. The print and electronic media are independently commenting on pending cases in an attempt to influence the outcome of such cases. This is contempt of court. Explain that the Attorney General is helping the court in the contempt case filed against the lawyer Prashant Bhushan in the year 2009.
Venugopal said before a bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar that this trend in the media is very dangerous. The AG further said, when a bail plea of one of the accused is coming, then a TV channel talks very horribly to the accused.
The Attorney General insisted, when the hearing of the Rafael case was going on in this court, we had big articles and comments along with a summary of some documents in front of us on the morning of the hearing. He said that the top court should also consider these issues while deciding what kind of speech and publication may be contempt of court.
