In his farewell speech he said that: “I have dealt with every case with my conscience and took every decision with conviction.” He went on to urge the legal fraternity to analyse every judgement of his “but do not give them this colour or that colour.” This statement reminds one of what Justice P.N. Bhagwati, former Chief Justice of India (CJI), had once said, “Political ideology is bound to colour judgments, there is no doubt about it…Decision-making requires a lot of skill..a lot of insight also..a lot of vision and therefore your political ideology is bound to colour your judgments, you can’t avoid it”. Then, how does one reconcile the two contradictory views about how judges think they judge. Jurisprudentially speaking, a decision is made by applying the articulate major premise i.e., the law, to the articulate minor premise i.e., the facts of the case. And what we automatically arrive at is a judgement. Prima facie, decision-making seems like a very simple and logical process in which a judge who is objective, impartial and neutral, acts like a slot machine to apply law to the facts to pronounce a verdict. However, the question is: is the process of decision-making as simple, logical and apolitical as it sounds? Justice Oliver Wendall Holmes, a celebrated Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, knew very well that judges have avid political leanings that find reflection in their decisions. He stated in unequivocal terms: “General propositions do not decide concrete cases. The decision will depend on a judgement or intuition more subtle than any articulate major premise”. This is also what Justice Bhagwati had sought to highlight i.e. the close connection between a judge’s political beliefs and one’s interpretation of the law. It is probably the same idea that Justice Mishra conveyed when he said that his judgements arose directly from his convictions and conscience. However, Justice Holmes went on to caution that a judge’s decision must not in any way infringe the fundamental principles in a social order as have been understood by the traditions of its people and its law. As such, a judge while deciding a case should refrain from giving one’s own meaning- derived from one’s convictions or conscience howsoever deep- to the fundamental principles of thought and action upon which a social structure rest. Professor Ronald Dworkin’s idea of ‘Law as Integrity’ provides adequate guidance to judges on how to determine cases and pronounce principled decisions instead of purely political ones. Typically, legal decisions must follow from principles of justice, fairness and procedural due process that provide the best constructive interpretation of the community’s legal practice. These fundamental conditions which a community has cultivated and cherished since eternity have been laid down in the nation’s constitutive document like the Constitution of India, 1950 and cannot be left as the inarticulate major premise for the judge to determine. It must be clear that the fundamental principles upon which the existence of the society rests are not to be left to the political judgement or personal intuition or the visceral sensations of a judge. In Lon L. Fuller’s fictional case of the Speluncean Explorers, the judges were presented with a difficult fact situation wherein they had to decide whether the four explorers, who got trapped in a limestone cave for day’s together and who in order to survive decided to kill and eat their fifth counterpart after playing a game of dice, should be held guilty of committing murder. Each judge decided the case in his own unique way reflecting one’s own personal choice of legal ideology. What is noteworthy is Judge Tatting’s description of an ideal decision maker. According to him a judge should disassociate the emotional and intellectual sides of one’s reactions and decide the case on purely intellectual basis. Further, a judge should be extremely cautious of contradictory emotions and put them aside as much as possible namely, sympathy for the four defendants; feelings of abhorrence and disgust at the monstrous acts they had committed; the public opinion against the defendants; media reports calling the defendants ‘cannibals’ and such other extraneous factors. Contrarily, a judge should decide a case on the basis of a convincing and logical demonstration of the natural result demanded by the law and community’s belief in the universal principles like ‘human life is absolutely valuable, not to be sacrificed under any circumstance’ and ‘all human individuals are born free and equal’. Theoretically, judges should determine cases based on relevant considerations namely the legislative expression; jurisdictional issues; procedure of courts; precedents and to an extent the demands of justice and fairness. The judge will rely on these factors in varying degrees depending on one’s intellectual ability, independence and initiative. Practically however, generalisations constructed through a combination of personal beliefs, political ideology, familial customs, individual habits, common ideas, stereotypical conclusions drawn from the facts of the case and moral blameworthiness of the parties et cetera are consolidated and wielded into the mental processes of judges. And this Justice Holmes and Justice Bhagwati say is the nature of the decision-making process and cannot be avoided under any circumstance. For example, in 1986 when a Georgia statute that criminalised ‘homosexuality’ was being challenged before the Supreme Court of United States in Bowers v. Hardwick 478 U.S. 186 (1986), one of the presiding judges, Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. was left confused on how to cast his decisive vote in such a crucial case. Unfortunately, in the end, the majority of the judges upheld the Georgia law. Shortly, before the decision was pronounced, Justice Powell had confided in his fellow justices that he had never actually met a homosexual individual in life to which, the dissenting Justice Harry A. Blackmun responded, “look around your chambers”. Ironically, one of his four law clerks that term was gay. Rather, a study had found that ‘for six consecutive terms in the 1980s one or more of Justice Powell’s assigned four clerks was gay.’ Later, in 1990 Justice Powell expressed reservations about his vote in the Hardwick case: “I think I probably made a mistake in that one.” This mistake rooted in his personal convictions resulted in homosexuality remaining a crime for nearly two decades until 2003. In 2011, Justice P.N. Bhagwati sought to dissociate himself from the infamous judgment of ADM Jabalpur v. Shivkant Shukla 1976 (2) SCC 521, which upheld the suspension of fundamental rights, even the right to life during the national emergency of 1975. Repenting over his ‘act of weakness’ by succumbing to the prevailing political pressures, he confessed 30 years later, “I plead guilty. I don’t know why I yielded… it was against my conscience…That judgment is not Justice Bhagwati’s.” On the other hand, Justice Khanna’s lone dissent in ADM Jabalpur case, costed him Chief Justiceship of the Apex Court but his portrait still hangs in Courtroom No. 2 of the Supreme Court as a symbol of judicial integrity, independence and strength of character. Writer Khushwant Singh aptly described Justice Khanna as “so clean a man that he makes angels look dishevelled and dirty”.                                                                                                       [Former Chief Justice of India -PN Bhagawati]The political ideology of a judge matters to such a great extent that with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, Americans have been left grappling with the dilemma whether President Donald Trump would make use of this opportune moment to replace her with a conservative, Republican judge. An astute Justice Ginsburg, acknowledging the close interconnectedness between politics and judicial decision-making, released a statement from her death bed saying, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed.” In January 1980, Justice Bhagwati wrote to Smt. Indira Gandhi: “May I offer you my heartiest congratulations on your resounding victory in the elections and your triumphant return as the Prime Minister of India…I am sure that with your iron will and firm determination, uncanny insight and dynamic vision, great administrative capacity and vast experience, overwhelming love and affection of the people and above all, a heart which is identified with the misery of the poor and the weak, you will be able to steer the ship of the nation safely to its cherished goal.’ Reading through these lines, one is left thinking: whether Justice Bhagwati’s admiration of the Prime Minister, personal likings and political leanings influenced his decision-making. He himself answered this question in the affirmative. Recently, Justice Arun Mishra expressed his fondness and admiration for Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the International Judicial Conference, 2020 amidst judges from over twenty countries in the following words: “He is an internationally acclaimed visionary…dignified human existence is our prime concern and we thank a versatile genius, who thinks globally and acts locally”. Justice Mishra did not stop at conveying his personal liking towards the Prime Minister but went on to praise the current ruling dispensation for scrapping close to 5000 archaic laws! It is highly likely that the judge’s political ideology, personal likes and dislikes coloured the prism through which he viewed legal issues. The close proximity between politicians and judges at a personal level is another reason that influences judges while they adjudicate on law and policy matters. Many are rewarded with plum positions immediately after they retire, as quid pro quo. Observing this trend, former Finance Minister of India, late Shri Arun Jaitley , rightly remarked, “Pre-retirement judgements are influenced by a desire for a post-retirement job…. this clamour for post-retirement jobs is adversely affecting impartiality of the judiciary.” However, the most strikingand mortifying example is that of former CJI Ranjan Gogoi who was recently nominated to the Rajya Sabha just within four months of his retirement. In such a scenario, a question that every judge should ask one’s own conscience is: whether while deciding a case, I replace constitutional principles with my own political convictions and viewpoint Views are personal only.(Prerna Dhoop is a human rights lawyer and Vandana Dhoop is an independent researcher)Next Storylast_img read more

The Brazilian Navy Begins Process of Acquiring New Warships

first_imgBy Andréa Barretto/Diálogo June 15, 2017 The Brazilian Navy finalized on May 10th the first stage of the process that will result in the construction of four Tamandaré class corvettes. The kickoff was a public announcement inviting Brazilian and foreign companies and consortiums to participate in a future bidding process through which the party responsible for building these ships will be chosen. Those interested must have proven experience building technologically complex military vessels with the potential to move more than 2,500 tons. Within a month, 21 companies and consortiums from different countries answered the Navy’s initial announcement. The next step will take place during the second half of 2017 with the release of the technical specifications of the ship’s design. Acquiring the corvettes is one of the Navy’s top priorities, along with developing new conventional and nuclear-powered submarines, said Rear Admiral Petronio Augusto Siqueira de Aguiar, head of the Navy’s Program Management Board, in an interview with Diálogo. He explained that the decision regarding the Tamandaré class vessels is based on a broader objective of expanding and modernizing the Brazilian Navy’s operational capacity. After that, a series of surface vessels is expected to be acquired, which includes not only corvettes, but also frigates, logistic support vessels, and amphibious ships. “The main advantage of acquiring Tamandaré class corvettes is the new ship’s flexibility, able to perform an array of tasks like protecting naval units, attacks on submarines, patrolling Brazil’s territorial waters to protect economic activities, and even participating in areas under the auspices of international organizations in support of our foreign policy,” Rear Adm. Petronio stated. Security and comfort The Navy’s squadron includes two corvettes, both built at the Navy Arsenal in Rio de Janeiro and “employed in various missions throughout Brazil’s territorial sea [nearly 22 kilometers from the coast] and abroad,” explained Rear Admiral Flávio Augusto Viana Rocha, director of the Navy’s Social Communications Center. The first to join the Brazilian warship fleet was the corvette Inhaúma, in 1989. While the corvette Barroso came along nearly 20 years later, in 2008, and has been used in the peacekeeping mission in Lebanon, in which it was the flagship vessel until March. According to Rear Adm. Rocha, the Inhaúma and Barroso corvettes shall remain in service, even after the Tamandaré class corvettes have joined the fleet. Several aspects of the new corvettes’ design have been highlighted as significant enhancements in relation to the vessels currently in operation. Among them is being stealthier as a result of redefining the design of the hull lines to reduce the ship’s visibility on enemy radar screens. “The issue of stealth is related to the secrecy of operations and the ability to conceal the ship,” Rear Adm. Petronio explained. With that “the corvettes will be able to operate discretely in an area of interest and enable the element of surprise when conducting their activities in our territorial waters,” he added. The design of the Tamandaré class corvettes also involves innovation in terms of service members’ comfort and security, in addition to environmental concerns. Thus, the ship’s interior layout was designed to provide better conditions for those who are going to work inside of it. It is expected to accommodate 136 people, to include crew members, divers, marines, pilots, and aircraft mechanics. In terms of the service members’ security, it aims to apply better monitoring resources of the ship’s various areas, and to incorporate labor-saving technologies in flood and fire prevention systems. Additionally, a few technologies expected to be employed on these corvettes will reduce gas emissions and improve the treatment of sanitary waste, kitchen waste, and oily residue. Regarding these ships’ combat system configuration, consisting of weapons, sensors, a tactical system, and weapons-firing direction systems, Rear Adm. Petronio stated that they “will have the necessary requirements for top-notch operation in surface, anti-air, electronic, and anti-submarine warfare actions.” International partnership Investment in the four Tamandaré class corvettes is estimated to reach upwards of $1.8 billion. In the project’s initial timetable, construction of the vessels is scheduled to commence in 2019. Deliveries are expected to occur within three years, between 2022 and 2025. The four vessels should preferably be built in Brazil, Rear Adm. Petronio said, but the Navy believes it is necessary to select a foreign shipyard with proven experience in making this type of ship. By doing so, risks are expected to be mitigated in developing and obtaining the ships’ expected performance. “A foreign shipyard’s participation will enable Brazilian candidates to acquire the qualifications to execute the project, through the necessary transfer of technology,” Rear Adm. Petronio said.last_img read more

Super Eagles on the March Again

first_imgThe Super Eagles began training in Abuja on Monday and by Tuesday virtually all the invited players had reported to camp,  making Rohr to be optimistic of victory in Zambia on Sunday. “We go to Zambia to win. It will be difficult because Zambia have a good team and like the three other teams in our group, any one of us could qualify for the World Cup. We watched them against Kenya (in an AFCON qualifier last month) and the pitch in Ndola is not good, but it will be the same for both teams,” Rohr said.Rohr said picking all three points in Ndola remains his side target. “I’m happy with the preparation because most of the players arrived on time and I’m happy we have good training condition. I’m happy to work with a new and young team because we have a lot of younger players here with some local players here too. We are going to Zambia to win the game, though it would be very difficult. All the four teams in the group can hope to be the best. Of course we have a look on the Zambia team because they have good players; we focus on our team and have good preparation and hope everybody work well,” Rohr told media.Indeed, former Nigerian international, Henry Nwosu, is optimistic that Nigeria is in good shape to take on the Zambians, saying the team is ready for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, just as he advised the coaching crew to work on the team’s attackline.He said that the players must work on their finishing and ensure that they come out tops in the group.According to Nwosu, not even Algeria and Cameroon can stop Nigeria if the players show “hunger” during the game.Former Eagles coach and captain, Christian Chukwu has warned the team to put behind the head-to-head advantage Nigeria enjoyed over Zambia. “We are expecting them to start well, and ensure they do not underrate Zambia, even though we have always beaten them in our previous games, but that’s not enough for us to underrate them, If we give our technical adviser all the support, and encourage the players, we should be able to win our first game against Zambia. These are the boys who want to showcase themselves, I believe they will do what Moses and Success would have done, and I’m happy they were given this opportunity for fight for their shirts in the national team.” Chukwu told Goal.However, finance could mar the team’s preparation and indeed the trip to Ndola if the claims of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, President, Amaju Pinnick is anything to go by.After initially refuting claims of financial challenges, Pinnick had told the Senate Committee on sports that the body needs government’s intervention to prosecute the game.“The draw was done for 20 teams that we qualify for the final phase of the World Cup and Nigeria was drawn against Zambia, Cameroon that has won the Nations Cup and attended the World Cup seven times,” Pinnick said.“Algeria is the highest- ranked team in Africa. Is a group that goes beyond the group of death. The good news is that we have sound technical crew and a lot of players doing well. But the missing link is our financial incapacitation which activates all we do on and off the field. “Before now we have made a request to government for intervention because funds were not coming from our sponsors because it is been very difficult for them so they claimed and so we did not have any choice than to resort to writing to the government. “So we are awaiting a response from them and the game is just in five days. We’ve put all arrangement on ground already. “We have discussed with Arik to go on a chartered flight and we are also about sending somebody to Ndola because there is a new hotel we have secured in Ndola but we could not pay for it. We have been about to secure about 60 rooms but we could not buy their ticket because we owe our traveling agent about 300 million naira. So there is no way we could get it and we have to request the players to come with economy tickets in reflection of what is happening to our economy and 80 per cent of them obliged our request,” he added.Meanwhile, Zambian team have been boosted by the return of midfielder Chisamba Lungu.Chisamba has declined recent Zambia call-ups, including the September 4 home game against Kenya, in the two sides’ final 2017 Africa Cup Group E qualifier that finished 1-1 in Ndola.The midfielder from Russian Club, FC Ural, joined camp on Tuesday in Ndola and is the eighth of nine foreign-based call-ups in the Zambia team ahead of Sunday’s 2018 World Cup Group B qualifying clash there against Nigeria.“Chisamba has been a very good player and it came as a surprise to me and to many Zambians when he said that he won’t be coming. So I just had to call him back and told him this is your country. ‘We are all here for national duty so you just have to honour your call, so he said ‘OK, I will come’,” Wedson Nyirenda said.Zambia captain Rainford Kalaba believes his team can secure qualification to Russia despite being drawn with heavyweights.“We have a chance to qualify, we still believe in ourselves. Even if we failed to qualify to the Africa Cup of Nations, we don’t have to get distracted; we have to work hard on the field and stay focused and united until we reach our destination in Russia,” he told The Post Zambia.Speaking in the same vein, Zambia Sports Minister, Moses Mawere, has expressed confidence that the Chipolopolo will beat the Super Eagles in Sunday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier in Ndola, charging the players and coaching crew not to disappoint as expectations from football fans are high, especially after Chipolopolo failed to qualify for next year’s AFCON in Gabon.“The country’s expectation is high; the only hope is the World Cup after failing to qualify to the Africa Cup of Nations. I challenge the players and coaches to step up and perform better. We need to beat Nigeria, we can do it,” Mawere told Zambia Post.A win for the Super Eagles would be a morale booster in their attempt to participate in the next World Cup.Meanwhile, former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West, has warned Rohr and his wards to be wary of tricky Chipolopolo forwards, saying that Zambia’s strength is the ability of its dangerous strike force to rip apart any unsuspecting defence.“Zambia’s strength is its forward. The boys are fast and dangerous. They may not be as good as the generation that won the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon in 2012, yet, Eagles defence should not go to sleep at any time when we play them this weekend in Ndola,” observed Taribo He is however unfazed with the pedigree of the Cooper Bullets’ firepower upfront. He believes that Eagles have the capacity to contain them.“I am happy with the quality of the boys in the current Eagles. They are young and strong even though they are mostly inexperienced. All they need is the same spirit with which they played Tanzania last month in Uyo,” stressed the ex-international.He said that it will be disastrous for Nigeria to begin the Russia 2018 qualifiers on a shaking note against Zambia.“It will be disastrous for Nigeria to begin the qualifiers with a defeat this weekend. After missing the AFCON back-to-back, starting the World Cup on a shaking note will not be good at all. I hope our boys will play Zambia with the same zeal they played the last AFCON 2017 at Uyo,”Meanwhile, the Zambia Football Federation (ZFF) has elected to lower the gate fees of the match in a bid to ensure full house in the satdium. The FA reportedly announced gate charges as low as 25 Kwacha, less than Nigeria’s Naira, for a section of the popular side and the highest charge of 500 Kwacha for the VIP section. The decision, according to reports is in a bid to fill up the 49,800 capacity Estadio de la Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, venue of the game and create enough buzz to hopefully intimidate the Super Eagles.Tickets came on sales on Tuesday afternoon at a couple of centres in Lusaka and Kabwe.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram New Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr will face his first real test on Sunday as Nigeria begins its quest for a sixth World Cup appearance with an encounter against the Chipolopolo of Zambia at the Levy Nwanawasa Stadium in Ndola for a place in Russia 2018.Having hoisted its flag in five previous editions of the Mundial-USA ’94, France ’98, Korea/Japan ’02, South Africa ’10 and Brazil ’14, Super Eagles will be campaigning in a group described as ‘Group of Death’, comprising archrivals-Algeria, Cameroun and Zambia, with only one country expected to qualify from the group.last_img read more
