Lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan Pays Re 1 Fine For His Improper Tweets
Supreme Court said that if Bhushan fails to pay the fine he will have to face imprisonment for three months and a ban from practising for three years in the Supreme Court.
Lawyer Prashant Bhushan was recently held guilty for contempt of court through his tweets, in which he criticised the Supreme Court along with Chief Justice of India SA Bobde. What was more shocking was that the Supreme Court imposed a fine of Re 1 for Bhushan’s improper tweets. Further, the top court said that if Bhushan fails to pay the fine by September 15, he will have to face imprisonment for three months and a ban from practising for three years in the Supreme Court. Earlier, Bhushan had refused to apologize to the apex court for his behaviour. The lawyer-activist said that he won’t apologize even if the authorities imprison him.
Today, Prashant Bhushan confessed his mistakes and paid Re 1 fine. The lawyer was photographed holding up a Re 1 coin and further he announced at a press conference saying “I propose to submit to the order and respectfully pay the fine.”
