Women's Organisation Condemns the Targeting of Senior Lawyers

AIDWA 13 May 2019

AIDWA condemns the targeting of Human Rights activists and senior lawyers Indira Jaising and Anand Grover and their organization “Lawyers’ Collective” through a petition filed by a so called NGO “Lawyers Voice” where credentials are totally unknown.




Ms. Indira Jaising had recently, like so many eminent citizens and lawyers and women’s rights organizations and groups been critical of the procedure adopted by the Supreme Court and the “In-House Committee” of the Supreme Court in dealing with the case of Sexual Harassment filed by an ex-employee of the Supreme Court against the Chief Justice of India. The timing of this petition immediately thereafter asking for a criminal case to be filed against them for some alleged violation of “FCRA” directly in the Supreme Court seems to suggest that they are being targeted for this. We feel that no notice should have been issued in this matter and urge the Supreme Court to immediately dismiss the petition.
