The more I read about the recurring fiasco involving the Chief Justice the more I am convinced that we are living in a failed state.
Imagine we have a public officer allegedly involved in misdeed after misdeed and all we are getting from the government of the day is that the “executive does not get involved” in matters involving the judiciary. Section 137 seems to be a convenient excuse for not doing the right thing. For heaven’s sake! It has been from talk about excessive travelling to allegations about missteps in the appointment of a judge to allegedly trying to influence members of the judiciary for personal and private purposes.
