NEDUMPARA SENTENCED BY SUPREME COURT

On 11th March, Supreme Court bench comprising of Justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran held Nedumpara guilty for committing contempt in the court and a notice was issued for him to be heard on sentence.

A fresh contempt was also noticed by the bench which was on the basis of a letter written by Bombay Bar Association along with Mathew Nedumpara. It allegedly had material which targeted Justice Nariman.

CJI Ranjan Gogoi was requested to constitute a new bench to deal with it separately. The Court said:
"We are of the view that the only reason for taking the learned Senior Advocate's name, without there being any relevance to his name in the present case, is to browbeat the Court and embarrass one of us. 

In point of fact, the style of this particular advocate is to go on arguing, quoting Latin maxims, and when he finds that the Court is not with him, starts becoming abusive"

The bench, comprising of Justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran also said that he is mostly briefed in hopeless cases. Vast majority of the cases relate to debtors who have persistently defaulted and seeking discretionary orders. 
The Apex Court sentenced Advocate Mathews Nedumpara to 3 months imprisonment, which will remain suspended so long as he abides by his undertaking that he will not attempt to browbeat any judge of High Court or Supreme Court. The Court has also barred him from appearing in Supreme Court for a period of one year from today, 27Th March 2019.
