SOUMITRA SEN IMPEACHEMNT ON MARCH 14 IN RAJYA SABHA
22 Feb 2011
JUDGE'S IMPEACHMENT MOTION ON MARCH 14
By R Rajagopalan
NEW DELHI: The Rajya Sabha is slated to take up an impeachment motion for three days from March 14 against Calcutta High Court judge Soumitra Sen, the second judge of the higher judiciary in independent India facing such a humiliation.
Justice Sen is accused of misconduct in allegedly misappropriating Rs 42 lakh when he, as a lawyer, had been appointed a receiver in a case by a court.
The motion will be put to vote on March 16, the last day of the first half of the budget session, unless and except Justice Sen resigns before or during the impeachment proceedings.
Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari has admitted the impeachment motion on the basis of the report of a three-member committee headed by sitting Supreme Court Judge Justice B Sudarshan Reddy that found him guilty of misconduct. Other members of the panel were former Punjab and Haryana High Court Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal and leading Jurist Fali S Nariman.
There are about a dozen senior lawyers in the Rajya Sabha belonging to various political parties in the Opposition who will be too keen to speak on the motion as that gives them an opportunity to embarrass an already distraught UPA-II government by focusing on corruption in the judiciary in one form or other.
Of course, the ruling Congress too has a battery of senior lawyers in the House but the party will not like any of them try to defend Justice Sen as it would amount to defending corruption, the party leaders said.
