The News Broadcasters Federation hails Supreme Court of India, upholding the sacrosanct principle of human liberty in its judgement providing interim relief to Arnab Goswami, Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief of Republic Media Network.
The Apex Court in its judgement explained that the writ of liberty runs through the fabrics of the Constitution of India, while highlighting the role and Constitutional duty of the High Court and the Sub-ordinate Courts to protect the citizens from the misuse of Criminal Law and authority. “Deprivation of liberty even for a single day is one day too many”, the Court had observed.
NBF herein reiterates and urges the Government of India to immediately set-up an independent, neutral national agency to investigate into any allegations of professional misconduct by journalists, executives, and owners of media company, in order to prevent selective harassment by the State Authority and to ensure the Freedom of Press.
News Broadcasters Federation (NBF), is the most democratic and the largest congregation of news broadcasters across the country, striving for the best interest – editorial and business – of news TV channels.
