Writ against conviction

Dear friends, today before a division bench of Allahabad High Court the question arose as to whether a writ petition is maintainable against order of conviction by general court martial which is subject to confirmation by superior authority? The court is saying that the writ petition is prematured as the sentence is yet to be confirmed.

i agree with the opinion expressed by the court, when the set procedure is already prescribed and has not been followed then the writ petition is not maintainable at all.


if such a writ is entertained then no one will file appeal in cases (as per the procedure)

writ petition not maintainable  in view  of alternative  remedy.

I concur with Shekhar and Kiran,

Best Regards

Since the order of conviction has not attained finality and is subject to confirmation by superior authority, the writ petition is pre-mature. I beg to differ with other views with regard to alternate remedy and procedure.
