How can our corrupt judicial system be cleaned up?

Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan deserves a Padma Vibhushana award for his heroic attempts to clean up our judiciry, specifically in terms of his role in the battle to have the assets and earnings of our judges declared on the public record.

Bhushan's calls for a National Judicial Complaints Commission and an independent Judicial Appointments Commission will not be the whole answer to cleaning up corruption in our judiciary, but they are certainly steps in the right direction.

See the interview with him in Tehelka Magazine, Vol 6, Issue 35, September 05, 2009, titled: "Half Of The Last 16 Chief Justices Were Corrupt"

  1. Dear Mr. Guptara,
    Thanks for your comments on Mr. Bhushan. I work with him on the Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reform and am proud and awed by his untiring efforts.
