"I personally feel... I am not a jurist/lawyer either by training or by preference. There are too many lawyers in Parliament. I feel that if somebody has been charged and that charge is not of a heinous nature like robbery, murder or any such thing and when trial is on, then that somebody should not be kept in the prison because you can't permanently deny bail. Bail by itself is a citizen's right unless he is charged with such a crime that it must not be permitted," Singh said.
Age has caught up with him and he is not talking sense. There must be retirement age for Politicians too.
I do not think they should get bail.Their crime is more heinous than robbery!
Perhaps this case is made out to show that the high and might are equal before law.
Judicial process has to be fair to all including the criminal.
Our justice rightly said that,
Gujarat High Court former Chief Justice K S Radhakrishnan(right now S.J. Mukhopadhaya) said that trial by media is not good as it sometimes affect the judiciary by generating strong opinion from the people.
Stating the recent example of declaration of assets by judges, Justice Radahkrishnan said that the media played a vital role in creating opinion among people on the issue.
He was speaking at the inagural function of a three day workshop on media and law at the Gujarat National Law University, here today. BJP leader and lawyer Arun Jaitely was also present at the function.
"Trial by media sometimes does not give the accused a fair trial," Radhakrishnan said giving refrence to Arushi murder case.
"Like law and justice are neccessary for the development of the soceity, media too plays an important role in bringing about social change," Radahkrishnan said.
