Lawyer-activist Prashant Bhushan has moved the Supreme Court seeking the right to appeal against his conviction last month in a criminal contempt case, arguing there are chances of "arbitrary, vengeful and high-handed decisions" in criminal contempt cases because the court was the aggrieved party. Arguing that the right of appeal was a "fundamental right guaranteed under the Constitution and is also guaranteed under international law", Mr Bhushan said: "This acts as a vital safeguard against wrongful conviction and would truly enable the provision of truth as a defence".
