Judges are subject to the law and must bear the consequences of their actions: Kerala High Court

In a recent case, Mohammed Nazeer MP & Ors. v. Union Territory of Lakshadweep & Ors., the Kerala High Court made it clear that constitutional courts must intervene whenever judicial personnel violate their duties in order to restore public confidence in the judiciary.

Whether a judge or a magistrate, Justice PV Kunnikrishnan emphasised that everyone is treated equally by the law of the state.

He added that judicial officers should not respond to criticisms levelled at them; rather, they should focus on demonstrating their loyalty to the legal system and their honesty.
