And in doing so, the Supreme Court’s judgement last week on the PMLA diluted well established principles of criminal law
The basic principle of the rule of law is that a person’s right to liberty cannot be denied, without a fair, just and reasonable procedure established by law. Also well established is another principle: that the law should stand above any person and authority in the land. With these two thoughts in mind, we propose to analyse last week’s judgement of the Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality and reaffirming the validity of various provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002.
