Page-ll: CJI bars senior advocates from out-of-turn hearing of cases Senior Advocates' monopoly broken to some extent. Every morning, the Bench, led by the Chief Justice of India, gives leeway to lawyers who appear in cases that require an urgent hearing. Lawyers must convince the top judge, very briefly,that without an urgent hearing, the rights, even the fundamental rights, of their clients may suffer a grievous harm. The Supreme Court put an end to the old practice of allowing senior lawyers to mention cases seeking their out-of-turn listing and hearing. Advocates-on-Record A bench also made clear that now onwards only Advocates-on-Record (AoR) would be authorised to mention cases for out-of-turn hearing. This is in keeping with the Supreme Court's long tradition as a people's court, the Chief Justices have allowed lawyers to "mention" cases for an early or out-of-turn hearing. The court uses its discretion to allow or dismiss the plea. The constitutional courts designate a lawyer as senior advocate in recognition of his or her superior professional abilities. However, a PIL petition filed by advocate Indira Jaising in the Supreme Court has demanded transparency in the designation.
Page-l11: GM mustard in for a long wait Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan has indicated that a decision on releasing genetically modified (GM) mustard commercially was unlikely any time soon. There are compelling arguments from those who support it and those against it (NAAS scientists) The Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC), India's regulator for genetically modified seeds, had on May 12 this year cleared GM mustard for environmental release and use in fields Final say:Though it was cleared by scientists, the Environment Minister's approval is required. Dhara Mustard Hybrid (DMH -1I), the transgenic mustard in question, has been developed by a team of scientists at Delhi University and the project was part-funded by the Department of Biotechnology, a division of the Science Ministry. A Parliamentary Standing Committee last month said that there was a paucity of studies on the impact of GM crops on human health. Should the Minister's consent be obtained, GM mustard would be the first transgenic food crop to be allowed for commercial cultivation in India. It could pave the way for several other GM food crops in the country.
Page-ll:Will complete Chahbahar port fast, says Minister of Shipping. Indicating a firm commitment, India declared that it would intensify work on the Iranian port of Chahbahar where it was developing facilities as part of regional connectivity plans. The port for which India and Iran signed an MoU in Tehran in May, 2015 would help India find a secure all-weather connection between India and the Eurasian continent. Timely completion of the project will allow India to overcome the lack of land access to Central Asia and Russia. Benefits: Top five companies of India have good presence in Iran and they are having a dialogue with their Iranian counterparts. Iranian investors are also going to benefit immensely. Wider access: Not just Central Asia, even Russia can be accessed by truck through Chahbahar, and Europe too can be accessed through Russia. Potent obstacles: Recently, U.S. President Donald Trump said that the Iran nuclear deal, which opened up the Iranian economy for investment, was "embarrassing'", casting a shadow on Iran's emerging global stature and its international partnerships. Our Minister, however, played down any threat to the Indian project in Chahbanar and said, there is no difficulty since we have finalised the order.

International: UNGA: Sirisena seeks support for a 'moderate' reconciliation Addressing the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Mr. Sirisena said haste would not yield good results and stated that a slow and steady path is the most suitable one to restore religious and communal harmony Even as sections within Sri Lanka criticise the government for its apparently delayed efforts on post-war reconciliation, President Maithripala Sirisena has sought the international community's support for a slow and successful" journey While critics are frustrated with the government's pace on reconciliation and accountability, Mr. Sirisena is also facing pressure from his political rivals opposed to such efforts. UNHRC criticism of Sri Lankan efforts: Recently, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights urged the government to act on its commitment to establish a clear timeline and benchmarks for mplementation .

Foreign Debt &Human Rights abuses: A huge foreign debt and allegations of rights abuses during war were two main challenges that his government faced. In addition to evolving an economic plan to service the massive outstanding debt, the government is "paying serious attention" to the allegations and is working on solutions as a matter of priority. International Response: Sri Lanka's benefactors, including the U.S., have commended the Sri gains. Human Rights Watch observed recently that setting up various reconciliation offices and talking of progress is not the same as implementing the 2015 Geneva resolution, pointing to "scant progress" on the UN resolution.
