Lawyers Collective to challenge 'unconstitutional' withdrawal of FCRA

Noted lawyer Indira Jaising's Lawyers Collective on Thursday condemned the Union Home Ministry's order of suspending the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA) registration for six months, saying it was a blatant attempt on the centre's part to victimise the organisation and its office bearers.

Issuing a statement, the organisation said it was nothing but a gross misuse of the FCRA which is being used to suppress any form of dissent.

"It is far too well known that both Anand Grover and Indira Jaising have represented several persons in their professional capacity as lawyers in several cases against the government and the functionaries including the BJP president Amit Shah protesting his discharge in the Sorabudin murder case. The Lawyers Collective intends to challenge the order as unconstitutional and required to be set aside," the statement said.
