The statement asserts that initiation of contempt proceedings against Mr. Bhushan, who raised his voice against several issues surrounding the Supreme Court’s functioning, appears to be an attempt at “stifling criticism”. “An institution as important as the Supreme Court of a country must be open to public discussion without the fear of retribution or action of criminal contempt,” they have asserted. Last week, a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra issued notice to Advocate Prashant Bhushan, asking him to show cause as to why contempt of court proceedings should not be initiated against him over his tweets on judiciary. Expressing concern over the initiation of contempt, 131 signatories to the Statement said, “In the past few years, serious questions have been raised about the reluctance of the Supreme Court to play its constitutionally mandated role as a check on governmental excesses and violations of fundamental rights of people by the state. These questions have been raised by all sections of society- media, academics, civil society organisations, members of the legal fraternity and even by sitting and retired judges of the Supreme Court itself. Most recently, the Supreme Court’s reluctance to intervene in a timely manner to avert the migrant crisis during the lockdown came under intense public scrutiny. Concerns have also been raised regarding the decision of the court to not restart physical hearings, even in a limited manner, despite passage of five months since the onset of the COVID pandemic. We urge the Hon’ble judges of the Supreme Court to take note of these concerns and engage with the public in an open and transparent manner. The initiation of contempt proceedings against Mr. Bhushan who had articulated some of these concerns in his tweets, appears to be an attempt at stifling such criticism, not just by Prashant Bhushan but by all stakeholders in the Indian democratic and constitutional setup. We believe the institution must address these genuine concerns.” The Statement points out that most functioning democracies such as the USA and the UK have circumscribed the concept of criminal contempt. Even in India, they said, the principle that criticism of the judiciary should not be stifled by the “indiscriminate use of the power of contempt” has been recognized by the Supreme Court. Therefore, in the interest of justice and fairness and to maintain the dignity of the Supreme Court, the signatories have urged the Court to reconsider its decision on initiation of suo-moto contempt proceedings against Mr. Bhushan and to withdraw the same at the earliest. The criminal proceedings emanate from Mr. Bhushan’s tweet dated June 27 which said, “When historians in future look back at the last 6 years to see how democracy has been destroyed in India even without a formal Emergency, they will particularly mark the role of the Supreme Court in this destruction, & more particularly the role of the last 4 CJIs” The Top Court had said received a complaint from an advocate about a tweet made by him on June 29 commenting on Chief Justice of India SA Bobde riding a Harley Davidson motor bike. Recently, Twitter withheld both the tweets and they were concealed with a message “This tweet from @pbhushan1 has been withheld in India in response to a legal demand.” Signatories to the statement include former judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Madan B. Lokur; former Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court, Justice AP Shah; Senior Advocate Sudhir Nandrajog, Senior Advocates Indira Jaising, C U Singh, Sanjay Hegde, Gopal Shankaranarayanan, Anand Grover, Amir Singh Chadha, Mihir Desai; Advocate Vrinda Grover; former Chief of Naval Staff, Admiral Ramdas; Social activist Anjali Bhardwaj, JNU Professor Deepak Nayyar, political activist Yogendra Yadav, Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Kumar Jha, former Rajya Sabha MP D Raja etc. Next Storylast_img read more

Staff can adapt their package online where they can see how changes willaffect their next pay packet. Gareth Owens, head of HR at Gartmore, believes the move will help thecompany recruit and retain the best staff. He said: “We want to ensure we are recruiting and retaining the verybest people.

Unilever health scheme set to boost executive energy

first_img Comments are closed. Unilever health scheme set to boost executive energyOn 2 Jan 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. The consumer products giant hopes its holistic health service will increasestamina and resilience The 50 top executives at consumer products giant Unilever are participatingin an innovative occupational health programme designed to address theirphysical and mental health in a completely new way. Since September last year, a pilot scheme drawn up by head of corporateoccupational health Dr John Cooper, has been providing a more holisticcorporate health service, going beyond health promotion and screening. The senior executives rarely have anything medically wrong with them, Coopersaid, but they do need more energy, stamina and resilience to cope with theincreasing demands of modern business life. “If you want to drive growth, you have to have leaders. What we aredoing is putting together something on the health side that might help ourexecutives refuel their energy,” he said. The programme focuses on six key areas. A standard health risk appraisal isconducted, checking factors such as sleep patterns, tiredness, energy, bloodpressure and fat and cholesterol levels. This is followed by a coaching session with a personal trainer in thecompany gym to assess fitness levels and confirm whether it is safe to continuethe programme. A fitness programme is then arranged for the employee. The third element is a nutritional assessment which checks whether theexecutives are getting the right mix of vitamins, minerals and supplements intheir diets to maintain energy and stamina levels – particularly important ifthey travel extensively. Participants are then coached on tactics to handle pressure, reduce stressand release energy. The next element involves examining the heart rate of the executives, saidCooper, as recent research has linked heart rate with cognitive performance. A scorecard is used to monitor the programme’s effect on the 50participants, and they are also regularly given questionnaires. “We plan to carry out questionnaires on a three-, six- and 12-monthbasis and to repeat our tests,” Cooper added. If the programme is successful, he plans to expand it throughout the entirecompany. last_img read more
