Eminent citizens want to be impleaded in Mid-Day case

Legal Correspondent

New Delhi: Twenty-four eminent citizens from various walks of life led by Magsaysay award winner Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday moved the Supreme Court seeking to implead themselves in the Mid-Day contempt case, coming up for hearing on Friday.

In an application, Mr. Kejriwal and 23 others said “the applicants are concerned citizens of India who are a part of civil society and are concerned that the judgment in this case will adversely affect the fundamental right of free speech of the citizens of India including those of the applicants for all time to come.”

They said that apart from the view of the Delhi High Court and concerned members of the media, “it is important to take into consideration the view of concerned members of civil society.”
