Former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi Tenders Public Apology Against Judiciary

After being reprimanded by the Supreme Court for his comments made against the judiciary in social media posts, former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi issued a formal apology on Tuesday. The supreme court ordered him to publish a sincere apology on social media and in major newspapers.

Modi stated on Twitter that he holds the Indian judicial system in the highest esteem and that he “will not do anything which is inconsistent with the majesty or the dignity of the Hon’ble courts or the Indian judiciary, in any manner.”

On March 3, the highest court requested Modi’s response after senior bar member CU Singh petitioned against him in a contempt case. Later, senior attorney Ranjit Kumar, who was representing the complainant, claimed that Modi’s two tweets on March 30 damaged the reputation of the judiciary.

“The contemnor has again tweeted and tarnished the image of the Indian judiciary,” said Kumar, “even after notice of contempt is issued.”

Senior attorney Abhishek Manu Singhvi, who is representing Modi, promised that an unqualified apology would be extended for both tweets on all social media platforms where the alleged offender has followers and in reputable publications with broad circulation in the Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, and Bengaluru editions.

The top court approved the ex-IPL boss’ request to publish his apology in a reputable newspaper and on social media on April 13.
