CJI Ranjan Gogoi rejects petition for inquiry into Justice Joseph’s comments, says newspaper reports can’t determine institution’s credibility

Justice Joseph had claimed that former Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra was being controlled by external influence, and that this had a bearing on the listing of matters having political significance.

The lawyer who mentioned the matter said that it is a question of credibility of the institution and sought urgent listing.

However, CJI Ranjan Gogoi made his point clear.

He said declining the request, “Credibility of the institution is not determined by newspaper reports, but by people who man it.”

In the interview with TOI, Justice Joseph reveals the following reasons why the four senior most judges of the Supreme Court held a press conference in January this year.

He said, “There were several instances of external influences on the working of the Supreme Court relating to allocation of cases to benches headed by select judges and appointment of judges to the Supreme Court and high courts. Someone from outside was controlling the CJI, that is what we felt. So we met him, asked him, wrote to him to maintain independence and majesty of the Supreme Court. When all attempts failed, we decided to hold a press conference.”
