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.

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”.

LAWYERS AS PROFESSIONALS OR AS BUSINESS

Thoudam Manihar Singh, Advocate, High Court of Manipur

In any state there are different tribes or casts or communities. Only one community or tribe cannot live alone in a society.  Today’s scene of the present society reminds one of Wordsworth’s line, “The wealthiest man amongst us is the best, Plain Living and high thinking are no more.” It is forgotten that the essential difference between business and a profession is that while the chief end of business is personal gain, the main goal of profession is public service. I am proud and privileged to belong the profession of law. Every community of a state are to be united under the Rule of Law of the State. United we stand, divided we fall. There was a time when a lawyer was regarded with respect. And for good reasons, prominent Freedom Fighters belonged to the legal fraternity and played a leading part in the framing of our constitution.
