Press Statement : New Delhi: 16 April, 2012

Senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani will appear before 5 judges constitution bench of the Supreme Court for Broadcast Editors' Association on 17th April.

The constitution bench is considering whether there should be any guidelines for media for coverage of sub judice matters. On behalf of BEA Mr. Jethmalani will oppose any such move.

BEA in its application has said that we are trying to do self regulation and so far we have been quite successful in doing so.
