Campaign for Judicial Accountability and Reforms (CJAR) and National Campaign for People’s Right to Information (NCPRI) have written a letter to the Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana requesting for a live webcast of hearings before the Apex Court in the matter of Pegasus Spyware Case.

The letter states reasons why there is a need to have live streaming of the Court hearings of the case. One of the issues pointed out in the letter is that the case is of public importance and has wide-reaching implications. Hence, it is necessary to have live streaming for this case.

The letter also showed its dependency on the speech which was given by Chief Justice NV Ramana during the inauguration of live streaming of proceedings of the Gujrat High Court.

In the speech, Chief Justice NV Ramana said that he is anxious to start live streaming of Court proceedings in some of the Courtrooms of the Supreme Court.

The letter further reads, “It is high time for demystifying the justice delivery system in the country and furthering access through open courts. Access to justice will become a true reality when litigants and interested parties get to witness, understand and comprehend justice first-hand. It is only on the back of informed citizenry that a representative democracy can survive and evolve.”
