Kottayam: Former Supreme Court Judge Justice K.T. Thomas on Friday welcomed the decision of the four judges of the Supreme Court who met the media this morning. Justice Thomas said that he welcomed the decision of the judges who came out openly against the Chief Justice and said that he would be happy if the latest decision helped improve the style of functioning of the Supreme Court.

He said that the four Judges of the SC coming against the Chief Justice should be perceived with seriousness. Justice Thomas was speaking to reporters at his residence in the evening. 

 

Justice Thomas termed the SC Judges meeting the media as "unparalleled" in the history of the Indian judiciary and demanded that the disputes should be solved by convening the full court of the SC.  He said that in the case of Justice Karnan (who absconded after being sentenced to six months last May for contempt of court), the SC had demanded that a memorandum be given shape for solving internal issues within the judiciary but it was still not formed.
