HC stays Government order appointing law officers

Madurai, Jun 19 (UNI) The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court today stayed the Government Order (GO) appointing law officers to the sub-ordinate courts in Karur and Tuticorin districts.
A Division Bench comprising justices TS Sivagnanam and P Velmurugan granted a stay on a batch of two PILs filed by GVictor Anto of Tuticorin and K Magudeewaran of Karur.
The petitioners told the court that as per the Criminal Procedure Code, the District Magistrate (District Collector) in consultation with the sessions judge should prepare a panel of advocates who in the judge's opinion are fit to be appointed as Public Prosecutors (PP) or Additional Public Prosecutors (APP) and no person should be appointed as PP or APP unless the name of advocate concerned appears in the panel. The petitioners pointed out that the Government appointed one K Shakila Begum as SPP, who had not actually enrolled her as advocate on the date of her appointment as SPP. Besides, the government also appointed a person whom the HC Bench condemned, as he failed to discharge his duty as PP in his earlier tenure, they said.

The rules have been framed to make appointments of law officers to the HC Principal Seat and its Madurai Bench. However, there are no such Rules in the case of subordinate courts in the state, they contended.


After hearing the petitioners’ side, the Judges said they were shocked to note that no procedure was followed in the appointments made to the Karur and Tuticorin.
The case was adjourned for July 3.
