Thread : What to keep in mind while arguing criminal cases involving finnancial frauds.

1) In cases involving murders etc, human emotions are involved. Various kinds of human circumstances evoke emotions that lead to the crime of murder. All these human factors are relevant.
2/ So even if it may look that the crime is such that death penalty should be given, when a lawyer minutely works on a series of emotional issues that lead upto the very minute of the crime, the judge may decide not to give death penalty.
3/ But cases involving financial frauds are different. Here the have usually zero sympathy towards accused.

These criminal cases of finnancial frauds are quite different. Sometimes amounts are huge and sometimes the amounts are very small..

Alas! Alas ! Alas ! If someone had told me this when I was young. I wish someone had told me then that “The Road of Goals is filled with pebbles of gold.”

All I needed to do was to lift pebbles and to finish goals mentioned under the pebbles.

2/ To understand a cryptic section, we #lawyers and #judges, read a sentence twice, thrice or till we understand meaning of each word.

If you will read earlier tweet in this thread again, you may find that the pebbles on the road to goals are very heavy.
3/ As I came out from the college, I saw that my friends were focusing on picking up pebbles of gold on the road of goals. I however kept gazing at stars, kept reading books and became an idealist. I did not gave much importance to pebbles.

How hypocritical #SupremeCourt #Judges are Collegium System:It is the system of appointment & transfer of judges that has evolved through judgments of the SC,& not by an Act of Parliament or by a provision of the Constitution.Note:Not a Parliament & Constitution
Achievements : 4,10,47,976 cases are pending in the various district and subordinate courts. Over 4.70 crore cases r pending in various courts in the country, including 70,154 in the #SupremeCourt
lack of transparency.
Scope for nepotism.
Overlook several talented Jr judges & Adv
1. Dipak Misra, CJI - Nephew of Rangnath Mishra, ex CJI
2. Rajan Gogoi - Son of Congress CM of Assam K C Gogoi
3. Madan Lokur - Son of B N Lout, ex Justice of Allahabad court

📢📢 THREAD: Why Must the Criminal Law Reform Committee be Disbanded?
#DisbandtheCommittee #NotLikeThis #NotRightNow #NotWithoutUs

Source: @citizensspeakup

In May, the Ministry of Home Affairs commissioned a #committee for reforms in our criminal #laws. In simple words, a #committee to rewrite all our criminal #laws.

Experts fear that the committee will dilute safeguards that exist to prevent unfair prosecutions & wrongful convictions. Several #lawyers, #activists, & academics have raised concerns about the #committee and called for it to be disbanded. But why? Let's take a look ⬇️

#ComicstaanSemmaComedyPa #comicstaantamil Completed the season yesterday night. The show was completely satisfying and engaging to say the least. Only disappointment is I have to wait again for the next season to begin. ,8 episodes, not enough, what to do 😊😊 @PrimeVideoIN
Starting off with @theabishekkumar, this man is full of energy and he can make the audience laugh out with even the lamest of jokes. No wonder he got the title. Absolutely incredible. Presence of mind, body language, content.. everything top notch... A real entertainer..
The runner up @Syamathegaama matched up every bit with the winner and no wonder the scores were tied in the finals. A lot of special performances throughout but periods set /finale was the best for me. group play ws a disappointment for me though.. Everything else was top notch

#Indian #Courts and #Judges, especially in the #SupremeCourt are honest upright and independent. They do NOT deliver judgements that the #Government tells them to. They are fiercely independent and uphold the(ir) right to free speech at great cost to themselves.
They spend sleepless night and work long hours to produce detailed judgements that explain their difficult reasoning in flowery language that ordinary people find impenetrable.
They do Not seek post-retirement jobs from the Government and so their judgements in favour of against citizens are explained by the foolishness of ordinary Indian citizens who persist in breaking the law by saying mean and nasty things about judges

It may or may not have been right or appropriate for @pbhushan1 to say what he did about #SupremeCourtOfIndia #Judges.
But it can never be right for the Court, never mind the same Justices, to sit in judgement on his statements.

The Justices are not demi-gods, beyond criticism.
In the #Ramayana story when an ordinary #dhobi questioned the propriety of #Ram unquestionably taking back #Sita, he did not have the dhobi hauled up for contempt. Not that what Ram did do was at all defensible!
Typo : Meant to write 'unquestioningly'

1. #Happy #Emotional No words to express. After 5 centuries getting a home for our #RamLalla How many sacrifices are done over this time period. Isn't this the Living Proof of tolerance & patience #Hindus have?

2. Isn't this what #SanatanDharma teaches? #Truth & #Dharma wins at the end. No where in the world can such beauty & miracle can be witnessed. All the Indians who lost their way and left our Dharma should do a #Gharwapsi

3. Indians will truly be indebted to many stalwarts & heroes who made this day possible for a billion #Hindus to witness this in our lifetime with their perseverance. Thanking them from the bottom of our hearts. #Justice is delayed but not denied. Light a #Diya

OK Judicial Studies tweeps!

A couple of us are organising a virtual morning tea next Tuesday 10am (AEST), as a bit of a chance to catch-up, fight the iso-blues and talk all things courts.

If you are keen, please drop me a DM.

#pandemicademia #courts #judges #judicialtheory
Others, please get in touch - it has been in my head for a while to start building a judicial studies network in Oz (and beyond), so this might prompt me to start keeping some records....

#Law and #gender | Interesting #statistics : In #France, 66% of judges are women, despite only about half of the population being female.

#law #droit #justice #judges #courts #LawTwitter #AppellateTwitter #genderequality #socialjustice Image
Compare that to the U.S.: with roughly the same overall percentage of women in the population, only 34% of state court judges and 27% of Article III federal judges are women.
How 𝑑𝑜𝑒𝑠 something like this happen?

My guess? The way they're selected.

In state courts, almost all judges are elected (90%).

In federal courts, judges are appointed by the U.S. President.

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"…
"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP…

well, that was a #hairy #few #minutes, I have no #hashtags left to use about the #uksc.

The UK if you've missed it, is, possibly surprisingly, a #democracy and #democracyisnotdead

Should we talk about consequences? implications and links? might go into threads from here on in
I'm making this thread up as I go, but since about 90% of the population think the only Democratic problem is the speed of #Brexit, and #conspiracy about #RemainerNow delays, maybe someone should list all the attacks - most of which are far more serious. I'll justify that #uksc
Here's my view, feel free to add. I'll put this in normal language first, and add relevant legals after.

1) UK Executive and Tories (UKET) attempt Rule by Edict
2) UKET attempt a Parliamentary Coup (we may now legitimately describe it that way)
3) UKET illegally suspend Parl'
