About High Court Bar Association of Manipur

A complete judicial system is the corner stone of a civilized society. The judiciary and the Courts in any society are in a continuous process of change and transition. Manipur was an Independent State before the advent of British in Manipur. The Ruler i.e. the King of Manipur was the head of both judiciary and executive. The king, under the monarchy system, looked into the matter of administration of justice by establishing different Courts and empowering some wise and noble persons under him to take up judicial works for deciding disputes and cases according to uncodified customary laws, usages and the principle of natural justice. ...READ MORE


STATUS AND ROLE OF ASSISTANT PUBLIC PROSECUTORS OF MANIPUR IN OBLIVION

R.S. Reisang, Senior Advocate.

The role of Public Prosecutor in a criminal justice system has been very aptly put in the following words : “The Prosecutor has a duty to the State, to the accused and to the court. The Prosecutor is at all times a minister of justice, though seldom so described. It is not the duty of the prosecuting counsel to secure a conviction, nor should any prosecutor even feel pride or satisfaction by the mere fact of success.” [Centre for Public Interest Litigation and others Vs. Union of India and others, reported in (2012) 3 SCC 117].  Therefore, the Public Prosecutors enjoy a special status and a unique place in dispensing criminal justice system/administration by the criminal courts in India inasmuch as he is a holder of “public office’ and hold a “statutory post”. Needless to say that the police investigates the cases on their own and submits report (Charge Sheet) in the courts and on such reports and materials provided by the police, the Public Prosecutors are to conduct the ...READ MORE


“JUSTICE IS NOW POLITICS BY ANOTHER NAME OR QUITE SIMPLY ABOUT LUCK”

Rajkumar Banna Singh, Member (HCBAM)

Parliament with rare political unity passed the NJAC act. It was right on two grounds. It had the power to pass such law; and the Law was premised on the sound thinking that the appointments process needed to be broadened. But parliament over-reached in a design and institutional sense, to put the collegium system comes to an end. Eminent Jurists have raised important questions about the efficacy and constitutionally questionable character of these measures. The Supreme Court striking down of the 99th Amendment (National Judicial appointment commission Act (NJAC) as unconstitutional has basically asserted the Independence of the judiciary. The purpose commission violates the separation of powers between the judiciary and the executive, which the apex court rightly holds, is fundamental to the basic structure of the constitution. This is of course, not the last word on the issue, since the Government can well file a review or curative petition. However, a line has been drawn by the rul ...READ MORE


DIFFERENT SIDES OF TRUTH & LIES

R. K. Nokulsana Singh, Senior Advocate.

The Justice is within the reach of all whoever high or low irrespective of creed and cast. What is justice? According to DICTIONARY meaning, it is –(1) the quality of being just, (2) integrity, (3) impartiality, (4) rightness (5) the awarding of what is due, (6) just conduct (7) fairness (8) the exercise of authority in the maintenance of right. In the administration of justice in a Court of law, it is widely taken as (a) awarding of what is due (b) the exercise of authority in the maintenance of right. In the social trend and system in the modern days, two habits appear to be predominant – (i) Truth and (ii) Lies. The meaning of the two habits is always addressed to social trends. In Democracy, the rule of law always prevails. In parliamentary democracy, what the leader utters is taken to be truth or lie. The compress- party now sitting in the opposition Bench in Parliament assert that the announcement in the last Lok-Shaba Election campaign by the Prime-Minister Narendra Modi fo ...READ MORE
