Contempt proceedings against Kerala CPI-M leader from Nov 29
Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Monday asked senior Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) leader MV Jayarajan to appear before it Nov 29 to face contempt of court proceedings for an outburst against judges in July.
A division bench of Justice AK Basheer and Justice Thomas P Joseph decided to initiate the proceedings against him following a direction from a larger bench of the court.
A three-member bench of Chief Justice J Chelameswar, Justice Basheer and Justice KM Joseph earlier decided to go ahead with the contempt proceedings. It decided this while taking up a public interest litigation (PIL) on the issue.
Jayarajan, 50, while addressing a public meeting in July after a high court order against roadside meetings, used objectionable words against the judges who passed the order.
Jayarajan, who hails from Kannur, is a two-time legislator and a member of the CPI-M`s state committee.
