PANJIM: Adv. Aires Rodrigues has today once again urged the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court Mohit Shah to immediately suspend North Goa District Judge Nutan Sardesai.  In a letter to the Chief Justice today Adv. Aires Rodrigues has sought an expeditious probe against North Goa District Judge Ms Nutan Sardesai for her having heard cases in violation of judicial propriety.
Adv. Rodrigues has also sent the Chief Justice a copy of the judgment passed by a Division Bench of the Bombay High Court at Goa comprising of Justice A.S.Oka and Justice F.M.Reis in which certain very serious observations have been made against District Judge Ms Nutan Sardesai.
The observations were made by the High Court while quashing an order passed by her on 29th April 2009 as Principal District Judge, a matter connected to the River Princess case which she had heard inspite of being a former employee of Mr. Anil Salgaocar.
The High Court in its judgment held that Judge Nutan Sardesai had exercised her discretion contrary to the well settled principles of law and that she had committed a serious error in appreciating the evidence in the case.
The High Court further held that Judge Nutan Sardesai had totally misdirected and committed an error by directing the Goa government to refund Rs five and half crores to Jaisu Shipping Ltd even though there was no such demand made by the company.
Adv. Rodrigues has in his letter to the Chief Justice stated that the observations made in the High Court judgment only confirms the allegations against Judge Ms Nutan Sardesai.
Adv. Aires Rodrigues has in his letter further stated that it was very improper for Judge Nutan Sardesai to have heard matters involving the interests of her former employer Industrialist Mr. Anil Salgaocar.
