The Asian Age - - Nation -

New Delhi: A lawyers’ body has ex­pressed grave con­cern over the is­sues raised by Supreme Court’s se­nior- most judge Jus­tice J. Che­lameswar in a let­ter to the Chief Jus­tice of In­dia urg­ing him to con­vene a full court to deal with the al­leged ex­ec­u­tive in­ter­fer­ence in ju­di­ciary. “The let­ter of Jus­tice Che­lameswar re­veals di­rect in­ter­fer­ence of cen­tral gov­ern­ment in the process of ap­point­ment of judges in the high court. The let­ter clearly shows that the in­de­pen­dence of the Ju­di­ciary is in peril now,” the All- In­dia Lawyers Union said in a state­ment. It said that lawyers across the coun­try were con­cerned with the lat­est reve­la­tions made in the let­ter by Jus­tice Che­lameswar.
