Lawyers are not owners of courts: Speaker
Kozhikode: Kerala Assembly Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan said Thursday that advocates do not own courts.
The Speaker asked the Judiciary to come forward to ensure that people get thier constitutional rights.
"Advocates are not above the courts. Nobody should deny the Right to Information of people. The Judiciary should show the decency to rectify its mistake. It is not correct to reject media in a democratic society," he said.
The media has the responsibility to disseminate information to people. However, media also should show responsibility when reporting news," the Speaker said.
He added that the ban on media in courts should not continue.
