Highly scurrilous and scandalous allegations have been levelled against the two judges of this Court. In our view, the entire contents of the complaints amount to contempt”, the bench observed.These sort of scandalous allegations have to be dealt with “sternly and nipped in the bud”, the bench asserted.The Court will hear the contemnor on May 1 on sentence.Senior Advocate Sidharth Luthra assisted the bench as amicus curiae.Proxy battle for Nedumpara In the judgment released on Monday, the SC observed that the contemnors were fighting a “proxy battle” for Advocate Mathews Nedumpara. “Though the alleged contemnors claim that they are not expressing any solidarity with Shri Mathews Nedumpara nor do they have anything personal against Justice R.F. Nariman, the entire reading of the complaints shows a totally different picture. When we read both the complaints together it is obvious that the alleged contemnors are fighting a proxy battle for Shri Nedumpara. They are raking up certain issues which could have been raised only by Shri Nedumpara and not by the alleged contemnors Nedumpara”, the bench observed. Vijay Kurle and Rashid Khan Pathan did not deny that they have sent these letters. The Court noted that they, in fact, justified the sending of these letters. “There is not even a word of regret in any of the affidavits filed by them”, the Court exclaimed. As regards the third contemnor Nilesh Ojha, the Court said that the letters sent by Vijay Kurle and Rashid Khan Pathan were sent with his knowledge and consent. “Shri Rashid Khan Pathan is basically waging a war against the Members of the Bench and against this Court at the instance of Shri Nilesh Ojha, if not Shri Nedumpara because in his complaint he states that Shri Nilesh Ojha was the lawyer for the respondent before the Court and could be the only person who could have supplied the material to Shri Rashid Khan Pathan”, the Court observed.”There can be no manner of doubt that this complaint by Shri Vijay Kurle was filed with a view to intimidate the Judges so that no action against Shri Nedumpara is taken”, the bench said.The Court also noted that Ojha had appeared for Nedumpara in many contempt cases.In March 2019, the Supreme Court had issued notices to Vijay Kurle, Rashid Khan Pathan, Nilesh Ojha and Mathews Nedumpara for their letters against judges.However, the Court discharged Nedumpara in a separate proceedings in September 2019, after he claimed that that he barely knew Vijay Kurle and Nilesh Ojha, and did not know Rashid Khan Pathan at all.No litigant has right to attribute motives against judgesThe top court added that “lawyers who try to browbeat or threaten judges have to be dealt with firmly and there can be no ill-­founded sympathy for such lawyers”.”Some members of the Bar cannot hold the judiciary to ransom by threatening Judges of initiating criminal action. If this trend is not dealt with firmly then any party against whom a case is decided will start filing criminal cases against judges”, the bench said.The apex court reminded that relationship between the Bench and the Bar should be cordial with mutual respect for each other. The bench emphasized that no litigant has a right to attribute motives to a judge. “No litigant has a right to attribute motives to a Judge. No litigant has a right to question the integrity of a Judge. No litigant has a right to even question the ability of a Judge. When the ability, integrity and dignity of the Judges are questioned, this is an attack on the institution. It is an attack on the majesty of law and lowers the impression of the Courts in the public eye. The allegations in the complaints are scurrilous and scandalous”.The bench added :”No doubt, any citizen can comment or criticise the judgment of this Court. However, that citizen must have some standing or knowledge before challenging the ability, capability, knowledge, honesty, integrity, and impartiality of a Judge of the highest court of the land”.Suo moto notice taken by bench led by Justice R F Nariman In March 2019, a bench comprising Justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran then took suo moto cognizance of a letter sent by Bombay Bar Association and the Bombay Incorporated law Society, in which they highlighted the attempt made by the contemnors to “terrorize and intimidate” the judges. The letter by Advocate Vijay Kurle, on behalf of one ‘Indian Bar Association’ (to President of India, CJI, Bombay HC CJ) sought permission to prosecute the judges (Justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran) and withdrawal of judicial work from them for having passed a Judgment dated 12th March, 2019 convicting Mr. Mathews Nedumpara for contempt of the Supreme Court of India.  The Bombay Bar Association said that the Indian Bar Association is not a recognized Bar Association and that it has ‘reasons to believe that it is a a self serving body floated by Advocates Nilesh Ojha and Vijay Kurle.  Taking note of these developments, the bench ordered on March 27, 2019: “Given the two complaints filed, it is clear that scandalous allegations have been made against the members of this Bench. We, therefore, issue notice of contempt to (1) Shri Vijay Kurle; (2) Shri Rashid Khan Pathan; (3) Shri Nilesh Ojha and (4) Shri Mathews Nedumpara to explain as to why they should not be punished for criminal contempt of the Supreme Court of India, returnable within two weeks from today.”Click here to download order Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Many of its competitors are following suit.These worrying developments are revealed within the FSB’s ‘Locked Out’ report published today, which reveals how particularly in rural towns and villages many businesses are left “high and dry” when a bank branch closes.The FSB’s report says many banks are not doing enough to help businesses find alternative ways to deposit cash and cheques, as the recently-introduced Access to Banking Protocol requires them to.Implemented in March last year, the protocol is a voluntary but industry-wide agreement in partnership with government and business interest groups to ensure facilities remain “close at hand” when braches close, and “rebuild trust in the sector”.But the FSB believes that many of the major banks are not sticking to the spirit of the agreement and that the protocol needs strengthening “to ensure banks undertake a proper consultation process, engage with small businesses affected by branch closures and provide appropriate banking service alternatives,” the report says.According to FSB chairman Mike Cherry (pictured) many bank often refer business customers to their local Post Office as the main alternative for banking services, even though the Post Office announced the closure or privatisation of 42 loss-making branches in January this year.“Our members have revealed a number of cases where banks have provided inaccurate details of Post Office branches which have wither closed or moved and hot not properly investigated the range of services available,” the report says.“Post Office in-branch services vary greatly and in many communities this means they do not dater for the needs of small businesses in their area.”  HOT TOPIC This story is being discussed in the forum nowThe Negotiator says:Banks are increasingly pulling out of the high street, but do agents care?Have your say Join this debate nowhigh street bank branches banking services Barclays October 17, 2016Nigel LewisRelated articles Letting agent fined £11,500 over unlicenced rent-to-rent HMO3rd May 2021 BREAKING: Evictions paperwork must now include ‘breathing space’ scheme details30th April 2021 City dwellers most satisfied with where they live30th April 2021last_img read more

Russia to receive two new Improved Kilo subs in 2020

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Russian Navy to receive first second-batch Improved Kilo submarines in 2020 June 27, 2018 View post tag: Russian Navy After starting construction on the first two boats of a new batch of Project 636.3 (Improved Kilo-class) submarines in 2017, Russia’s Admiralty Shipyard is set to deliver the submarines to the navy in 2020.The seventh and eighth boats in their class will be handed over to the Pacific Fleet in November 2020, Russian news agency Tass reported based on the shipyard’s annual report.Admiralty Shipyard started construction on the boats, to be named ‘Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky’ and ‘Volkhov’, in July 2017 with a keel laying ceremony in St. Petersburg.According to plans from 2017, the two submarines were expected to be delivered in 2019 while all six second-batch Project 636.3 subs were to be delivered by 2022. The latest adjustments will likely postpone delivery dates for all units in the class.These new submarines (also referred to as Varshavyanka-class in Russia) are being built under a contract the Russian defense ministry signed with Admiralty Shipyard and Armur Shipbuilding Plant in September 2016.The sixth unit in the class – Kolpino – was expected to be the Russian Navy’s final Improved Kilo-class submarine, but problems and delays in the development of the Project 677 Lada-class diesel-electric attack submarine program prompted Russia to order an additional six Project 636.3 submarines.The submarines are armed with 18 torpedoes and eight surface-to-air missiles. The vessels can accommodate a crew of 52 submariners and stay at sea for 45 days.They displace 4,000 tonnes when submerged and reach speeds of over 17 knots, according the Russian Navy. The submarines carry Kalibr-cruise missiles which are also being fitted on Russian nuclear-powered Oscar-class submarines.

Case of meningitis at Catz

first_imgA St Catz student is recovering from meningitis, having been hospitalised over the weekend.Sarah Hartley, a fresher reading English, was rushed to John Radcliffe hospital on Sunday morning after complaining of feeling unwell and developing a rash.Fellow student Janek Seevaratnam, who took Hartley to hospital, has been praised for his handling of the situation and his response as her condition worsened. Seevaratnam, who is JCR welfare Rep and a friend of Hartley’s, said he had looked after her as her condition deteriorated on Saturday. “I visited her on Saturday as she had been in bed all day with flu-like symptoms.  I gave her ibuprofen to see her through the evening but when I came back at eleven she was really feverish.”Seevaratnam took Hartley to hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning following advice from the NHS helpline after noticing the rash. “The NHS helpline advised she see a doctor in the next two hours, so we went to A&E. It took three hours to see a doctor by which time she had a high fever and meningitis symptoms.”Seevaratnam said Hartley had been visited by friends while her family remained by her bedside as she continues to make a full recovery. “People have been visiting her daily and hopefully she’ll be sent home next week.”JCR President Femi Fadugba said the College had acted swiftly to ensure her close friends were given precautionary treatment and to raise awareness among all College members about the risks and symptoms of meningitis. “Meningitis isn’t easily transferable, but as a precaution, all close friends of the student were put on an appropriate course of antibiotics. The emphasis however, has not been on trying to avoid interaction with the illness, but on being aware of the signs and symptoms.”Fadugba praised the rapid reaction of Seevaratnam, saying, “We were very fortunate that the Male Welfare Rep, Janek Seevaratnam, is both very good at his job and a good friend of the student so she was taken to hospital as soon as the [the] symptoms worsened.”Meningitis is caused by the Meningoccal bacteria that are carried in the back of the throat by one in ten people.
