NEW DELHI: The Central Information Commission has directed the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to disclose by June 5 all information on the "code of conduct for judges for various courts including the higher courts" to a complainant.

 

Non-compliance with the order will be regarded as a mala fide suppression of information and penalty proceedings initiated against the NHRC, Information Commissioner O.P. Kejariwal said.

 

On June 12, 2006, Subhash Chandra Agrawal of Delhi filed an application with the NHRC's public information officer, seeking a copy of the code of conduct and some other information. In his reply, the officer said the NHRC did not have a copy and that it could be obtained from the appropriate authority.

 

In July, Mr. Agrawal approached the Commission seeking a direction to the NHRC to furnish a copy of the recommendations of the `Conference on Corruption' held in May 2006. The NHRC said the recommendations would be printed and a copy sent to him.

 

However, in view of the importance of the issue, the Commission directed the NHRC to show Mr. Agrawal a copy of the recommendations before they were sent for printing. It also asked the NHRC to allow the complainant to inspect the file on his letter written to A.S. Anand, NHRC Chairman, on May 25, 2006.
