All India Lawyers Union condemns Rajasthan ordinance


The All India Lawyers Union has condemned the Rajasthan government ordinance which seeks to protect judges, magistrates and public servants from being probed without prior sanction, saying it reflected the “authoritarian” attitude of the state government.

The lawyers’ body demanded the immediate withdrawal of the Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment) Bill, 2017, terming it as “unconstitutional”, “oppressive” and “undemocratic”.

Maintaining that the ordinance was “an attack on freedom of the press”, it said the measure sought to bar the media from reporting on accusations till the sanction to proceed with the probe was obtained.

The ordinance was widely criticised by legal experts, media fraternity and the public at large.
