Supreme Court To Pronounce Verdict On Contempt Case Against Prashant Bhushan Today
The Supreme Court is scheduled to pronounce its verdict in the suo motu contempt case against activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan for his two tweets allegedly derogatory against the judiciary.
A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra will pronounce its verdicts in the matter.
The top court on August 5 had reserved its verdict in the matter after Mr Bhushan defended his two alleged contemptuous tweets saying they were against the judges regarding their conduct in their personal capacity, and they did not obstruct administration of justice.
On July 22, the top court had issued a showcause notice to Mr Bhushan after initiating the criminal contempt against him for his two tweets.
While reserving the order in the contempt case, the top court had dismissed a separate petition filed by Mr Bhushan, seeking recall of the July 22 order by which the notice was issued against him in a contempt proceeding initiated for his alleged contemptuous tweets against the judiciary.
