(G.N.S) dt. 23
GHAA (Gujarat High Court Advocates Association) has given a deadline till July 28 to the Gujarat High Court to open courtrooms “as a last resort to avoid any friction, confrontation and feeling of ill will and distrust”. If the chief justice agrees to the request and physical hearing is resumed by then, the association will put off its protest.
A decission has been unanimously taken by Gujarat High Court Advocates Association (GHAA) to boycott all official functions being organised by the High Court in protest against its decision of not allowing physical hearings in courtrooms.
In a meeting held some days ago, GHAA has unanimously resolved “to boycott all official functions” like full court reference, judges’ oath taking ceremonies and Lok Adalats. It has also resolved not to accord any welcome or farewell of any judge either on appointment, elevation or retirement.
The GHAA resolution said that the association “notes with disgust” that despite frantic requests and appeals by lawyers who are faced with immense difficulty and hardship and despite a decline in Covid-19 cases, the HC has not resumed physical functioning particularly when the government has permitted opening of all activities including malls and gymnasiums.
