Supreme Court agrees to hear The Shillong Times editor’s petition against HC’s order

March 15, 2019:

On Thursday, Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi agreed to hear a petition filed by The Shillong Times editor Patricia Mukhim against an order of the Meghalaya High Court.

SC to hear The Shillong Times editor’s plea
SC to hear The Shillong Times editor’s plea

The HC found her & her publisher, Shobha Chaudhuri, guilty of contempt.

The case relates to articles published by the paper on the perks and facilities for retired Judges & their families. A Bench comprising of Chief Justice M.Y. Mir & Justice S.R. Sen of the Meghalaya High Court, taking umbrage at 2 reports published in The Shillong Times, had held the newspaper liable for Contempt of Court.

The High Court invoked its powers under Article 215 of the Constitution to sentence the contemners.

The two were made to sit in a corner of the courtroom as punishment till the judges rose for the day and fined ₹2 lakh each. Failure to deposit the amount would result in 6 months simple imprisonment and a ban on the paper.

The CJI listed the case for hearing on March 15.

The Press Council of India said the conviction of Ms. Mukhim and Ms. Chaudhuri was uncalled for. If allowed by the Supreme Court, it will join their petition.
