Instead of correcting the defects in their petitions, lawyers are busy claiming publicity: SC on Rafale review petitions

The CJI clarified that the delay in the hearing of the review petitions is not on the part of the Court but on the part of the lawyers who are not correcting the defects in their petitions but going to media for wide publicity.

The Supreme Court has expressed displeasure over some lawyers seeking wide publicity over the Rafale case by filing defective review petitions. A Bench headed by CJI Gogoi while referring to the review petitions filed against the Rafale Case verdict said that the lawyers who file these petitions go to the media for publicity instead of removing the defects in these petitions.

“The other side is not so innocent. The petitioners go to media and claim wide publicity,” said the Bench consisting of CJI Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna. The remarks by the Apex Court came when it was hearing the lawyers who were mentioning cases for urgent listing and hearing.

The CJI clarified that the delay in the hearing of the review petitions is not on the part of the Court but on the part of the lawyers who are not correcting the defects in the petitions.

Earlier, on December 14 the Supreme Court had dismissed a batch of petitions challenging the Rafale deal saying that there was no occasion to “really doubt the decision-making process” requiring the setting aside of the contract. Petitions seeking filing of an FIR and a court-monitored probe into the alleged irregularities in the Rafale deal entered into between India and France were rejected by the Apex Court. The review petitions filed in the court include the petition of Aam Admi Party lawmaker Sanjay Singh.
