Chennai: A Madras High Court judge is seeking initiation of contempt proceedings against actor Suryia for his remarks at Chief Justice A P Sahi of the court.

Judge S.M. Subramanim of the court has written to the Chief Justice, seeking initiation of contempt proceedings against actor Suryia for his remarks that judges are dishing out justice through video conferencing in times of Covid-19 lockdown, fearing their lives, while NEET candidates are expected to appear for exams.

He wrote the letter to Justice Sahi on Sunday night, hours after Suriya issued a detailed statement, speaking against NEET. He attacked the government for asking students to come to a center to write the exam, even while the judiciary was conducting its proceedings through video conferencing for the “fear of life.”

In his letter Justice Subramaniam referred to the statement by Suriya which has been carried by Tamil television channels.

In his letter Justice Subramaniam said: “The said statement, in my considered opinion, amounts to contempt of court as the integrity and devotion of the Hon’ble Judges as well as the judicial system of our great nation are not only undermined but criticised in a bad shape (sic), wherein there is threat for the public confidence on the Judiciary.
