Media debates on legal issues held without understanding legal provisions, principles; leave judiciary alone: Kerala High Court

Justice Ziyad Rahman AA lamented the fact that such debates convey not news but views and media trials of actual trials often prejudge and pass verdicts and expect courts to follow the same.

It is unfortunate that, in the debates in media (‘trials’), causes and issues are prejudged, and the verdicts are passed, expecting the courts to pass orders, sentencing the accused to the maximum, by following their declarations. These so called debates, claimed to be carried out to enlighten the public at large, convey their views(instead of news), without even fully knowing the nature of materials placed before the court, without properly understanding the circumstances under which the courts take decisions and unaware of the legal provisions and principles relied on/applied by the courts,” the Court said.
