The top court had on August 14 held Bhushan guilty of criminal contempt for his two contemptuous tweets against the judiciary
In a tweet last month, Prashant Bhushan was critical of the CJI being provided a special helicopter by the MP government.
Over 130 prominent Indian personalities signed a statement, ‘unequivocally’ condemning the Church attack in France’s Nice.
Attorney General K K Venugopal was appearing before a bench headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar to assist it in the hearing of the 2009 contempt case against activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan and journalist Tarun Tejpal.
Referring to a Supreme Court judgement, the review plea said the court never indicated to Prashant Bhushan that it was contemplating barring from practicing as a lawyer.
Citing Prashant Bhushan’s recent comments Rahul Gandhi, says ‘what was known has been confirmed.’
The Supreme Court had in November 2009 issued contempt notices to Prashant Bhushan and Tarun Tejpal for allegedly casting aspersions on some sitting and former top court judges in an interview to 'Tehelka'.
Prashant Bhushan said that scandalising the court or lowering the authority of the court is the problematic part of the contempt case as that is directly in conflict with freedom of speech.
Prashant Bhushan, photographed holding up a Re 1 coin, announced at a press conference: 'I propose to submit to the order and respectfully pay the fine.'
Moily expressed the view that judges should not take upon themselves to punish a person who makes allegations against them.
Failing to pay the fine amount of one rupee, Prashant Bhushan will be barred from legal practice for thee years and face thee-month jail term, the Supreme Court said.
The Supreme Court had on Tuesday reserved its judgment on the contempt of court case against Prashant Bhushan.
Prashant Bhushan's counsel Rajeev Dhavan told the top court its order of August 20, directing Bhushan to file an unconditional apology, was an exercise of coercion.
As Justice Arun Mishra is set to retire from the apex court on September 2, he said he could not hear the 2009 case as it would need lengthy arguments. Justice Mishra has now urged CJI Bobde to list the case before an appropriate bench on September 10.
Prashant Bhushan told the Supreme Court that 'an apology for expression of his beliefs, conditional or unconditional,' would be insincere.
Bhushan’s submission may go down in history books both as the mark of an individual committed to his ideals, irrespective of the personal cost they may extract, and as yet another dark episode that the apex judiciary could have done without.
