Supreme Court: Court's power of contempt can't be taken away even by legislative enactment

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 29 September 2021
Observing that the court's power of contempt can't be taken away even by a legislative enactment, the Supreme Court on Wednesday held the chairperson of an NGO guilty of contempt for not depositing Rs 25 lakh for "scandalising and browbeating" the court. "We are of the view that the contemnor is clearly guilty of contempt of court and his action to scandalise the court cannot be countenanced," SC said.
