Hurling abuses at woman magistrate in Kottayam; HC takes case against 29 advocates

high-court

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court took a suo moto case against the lawyers for hurling abuses at the woman chief judicial magistrate in Kottayam. Criminal contempt action has been taken against the 29 lawyers.


The division bench observed that the action of the advocates brought disrespect to the judicial system. The case will be considered tomorrow. The president of the Kottayam Bar Association has also been named as accused. The division bench stated that the court proceedings were disrupted for several hours and the action of the lawyers was unacceptable. The district judge and the chief judicial magistrate had submitted a report to the high court registrar.

The junior lawyers protested by shouting ‘’Podi Pulle CJM'. The magistrate recorded in the daily report that the lawyers obstructed the court proceedings for eight minutes. The police have not filed a case against the lawyers as no complaint was received.

The incident is: In 2013, Ramesan, a native of Manarcad convicted in a fraud case, obtained bail from the court through advocate P M Nawab after creating a fake receipt of tax payment. He fled after the court rejected his appeal. The court later summoned two people who stood for his bail. One of them said that he did not stand for his bail. The fraud came to light on further investigation. With this, the Shirastadar of the CJM Court filed a case against Ramesan as the first accused and Nawab as the second accused in the complaint filed at the Kottayam East Police Station.
