Chief Justice rules against Sharma in licence suspension case

The High Court Wensday ruled that the Advisory Committee on Broadcasting (ACB) was not obligated to explain its decision to advise then President Bharrat Jagdeo that the station license be suspended and further that it could rule on the decision of the President to so do. Chang ruled that since the applicants were not denying but rather admitting the infringements and were claiming that the broadcast was made through human error and was not intentional, the failure of the ACB to give reasons for its findings was not unfair or required by the demands of natural justice – the principles of which are not inflexible or engraved in tablets of stone.
