Armed Forces Tribunal Bar Association, Principal Bench, calls for protest on 22nd September 2016

The Armed Forces Tribunal Bar Association at the Principal seat at Delhi has called for a protest all over India on 22nd September 2016 on the issue of non-appointment of Judicial Members and other factors affecting the administration of Justice for military personnel and veterans and also the judicial independence of the tribunal.

The move has been covered by many newspapers including The Indian Express.

The entire and very pertinent letter by the Association, addressed to the Chief Justice of India, can be accessed here.

The association has set a good precedent by calling for observance of a protest day but not abstaining from work so that the interests of litigants and dignity of the legal profession are maintained.
