'Dinakaran cannot return till his name is cleared'
The Bangalore Advocates' Association on Thursday took strong exception to the statements made by a group of lawyers, who had demanded that Justice Dinakaran should return to the seat and start hearing matters.
A group of lawyers had stated to the media that the Chief Justice of the Karnataka high court, who has been asked to take leave in the wake of corruption charges, should come back and start hearing matters.
The association took strong exception to the statements, and passed a resolution seconding their earlier one in which it was stated that under no circumstance will Justice Dinakaran come back to the court unless his name is cleared of the charges.
President of the association Putte Gowda told rediff.com that the they have not changed their stand on Dinakaran.
"The statements that have been issued seeking the return of the CJ are motivated, and have been issued by vested interests. I don't want to go into the details as to why these people have issued such a statement, but would like to add that the association is going to initiate proceedings against them," Gowda said.
"Further I also want to tell the media that no one, apart from either the Bar Council or the Advocates' Association, is authorised to give such statements," Gowda added.
