between a Judgeâs personal life and the official one.
The private lives of Judges is wide open to public scrutiny. What they do
in their private life matters and does impact their responsibility as
Judges. Can they be ethical in public if they are dishonorable in private?
Their private life reveals more about morals than anything else.
It is imperative that a Judge should never entertain a lawyer with whom he
or she may be having an affair with. To put it very bluntly it should be a
straight refusal in bed, if not an upright recusal in Court.
The French Nobel Prize winning Author and Philosopher Albert Camus had
rightly said âA man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this worldâ.
The 7th President of United States of America Andrew Jackson had also then
so very rightly said âAll the rights secured to the citizens under the
Constitution are worth nothing, and a mere bubble, except guaranteed to
them by an independent and virtuous Judiciaryâ
Justice should not only be done, but also seen to be done!
