The Supreme Court will deliver its verdict on the sentence in the suo motu criminal contempt case against Advocate Prashant Bhushan on Monday, August 31.

A three- judge Bench of Justices Arun Mishra, B. R. Gavai and Krishna Murari had reserved its judgment on the quantum of punishment to Bhushan, after he refused to apologise. 

The Apex Court had found Bhushan guilty of criminal contempt on August 14, for his two tweets against the Chief Justice of India and the Judiciary. While one tweet his comment the current CJI SA Bobde’s picture, the second tweet was his criticism on the role of last four CJIs in India.

The Court was scheduled to determine the quantum of punishment for Bhushan on August 20th, but it decided to give Bhushan more time reconsider his statement and gave him a chance to tender an unconditional apology by August 25th. Bhushan refused to apologise and filed a supplementary statement.

He stated that his tweets represented this bonafide belief that he continues to hold and Public expression of these beliefs was, in line with his higher obligations as a citizen and a loyal officer of the court. Therefore, an apology by him for expression of these beliefs, conditional or unconditional, would be insincere

Attorney General for India, K K Venugopal, had also asked the Bench to let Bhushan off after a reprimand or a warning, rather than punishing him.
