I stand by my remark on corruption in higher judiciary: TN YouTuber tells court

Chennai: A well-known YouTube in Tamil Nadu told a court he stands by his remarks that higher judiciary is riddle with corruption.

'Savukku' Shankar on Thursday expressed his stand before the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court.

He was responding to a suo moto contempt of court case following his YouTube video on July 22 where he said the "entire higher judiciary was riddled with corruption".

He appeared in person and told Justices G.R. Swaminathan and B. Pugalendhi of his stand but later sought time to respond to the notice.

Earlier the court had asked the blogger whether he would require counsel to which he answered that he would argue on his own.

"Which counsel will speak against the court?" he had said.

The YouTuber however, settled for senior lawyer N.R. Elango, also a Rajya Sabha MP, later.

The court adjourned the case to September 8 for further hearing.

The Madurai bench had issued a show case notice to Shankar on August 4 asking him why contempt proceedings should not be initiated against him for his comments against the highest judiciary.
