SCBA Chief Questions ‘Extraordinary Urgent Listing’ of Arnab’s Case In SC

Mumbai: The Supreme Court Bar Association President Dushyant Dave has written to Secretary-General of the apex court questioning the ‘Extraordinary Urgent Listing’ of Republic TV Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami’s petition.

Dave, in a communication with Supreme Court Secretary General Sanjeev S Kalgaonkar, said: “I address this letter to you (Secretary General) as the President of the SCBA to lodge strong protest with regard to the subject matter which has been listed for tomorrow (Wednesday). I am not writing this letter to anyway interfere in with his (Goswami’s) rights to move the Supreme Court. The serious issue here is selective listing of matters that the Registry under your leadership is indulging in for last eight months during the Covid-19 pandemic.”

“While thousands of citizens remain in jails, languishing for long periods while their matters filed before the Honble Supreme Court are not getting listed for weeks and months, it is, to say the least, deeply disturbing as to how and why every time Mr Goswami approaches the Supreme Court, his matter gets listed instantly. Is there any special Order or Direction from the Chief Justice of India and the Master of the Roaster in this regard? It is quite well known that such extraordinarily urgent listings of matters cannot and does not take place without specific orders from the Chief Justice. Or is it that as the administrative head you or the Registrar listing is giving special preference to Goswami,” Dave asked, as quoted by The Print.

“The subject matter was filed yesterday, it got instant diary number, though not final, and it is listed for Wednesday. This is a gross abuse of administrative power, whosoever has exercised it on administrative side,” he added.

Arnab’s petition is listed for hearing before a Vacation Bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud on Wednesday.

Questioning Dave’s “selective outrage”, Goswami’s wife Samyabrata wrote to the Supreme Court Secretary General, pointing out that cases filed by senior journalist Vinod Dua and activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan were also listed urgently.

She alleged that Dave’s letter was contemptuous as “it tends to interfere with administration of justice.”
