Demanding immediate transfer of 17 “uncle Judges” from the Punjab and Haryana High Court to some other High Court,lawyers of the High Court have called for a meeting on this and several other issues concerning Judicial accountability.

The lawyers are demanding that a committee from the High Court Bar Association be constituted which meets the Chief Justice of India and presents its demands. One of the demands raised by the High Court Bar Association members includes impeachment of Judges who are found guilty on account of various charges.

Also,the Bar members have demanded that amendments be made in the Judicial accountability Bill passed by the Lok Sabha. The lawyers have also raised the point that the selection system of Judges needs an overhaul as only relatives and juniors of Supreme Court Judges are appointed as High Court Judges.

The lawyers have demanded that deserving lawyers should be appointed as Judges. A requisition to this effect was mooted by members of the Bar. As many as 1205 members have signed the requisition and called for a meeting. A meeting to discuss all the aforesaid issues will be held on August 28.
