Nagaland Judicial Officers’ Association (NJOA) held its 16th general conference at the Conference Hall of the Gauhati High Court, Kohima Bench on October 20. 

The conference was graced by Justice Zelre Angami, Judge, Gauhati High Court (retd) as the chief guest. 

According to DIPR, the chief guest in his address spoke about the importance of judiciary and its functions. While referring to the landmark judgment of the Supreme Court in All India Judges Association Vs Union of India, he quoted “the judicial service is not service in the sense of employment. The judges are not employees. As members of the judiciary, they exercise the sovereign judicial power of the State. They are holders of public office in the same way as the members of the council of ministers and the members of the legislature.”  

While quoting the same judgment, the chief guest also stated that under the Constitution of India, the judiciary is above the administrative executive and any attempt to place it on par with the administrative executive has to be discouraged. He reminded the judicial officers of the State that they exercise their powers independently and must do so with impartiality. He emphasized the importance of the judicial officers to perform their duties with integrity and to promote the cause of justice.  

Earlier, presidential address was delivered by NJOA president, Neiko Kanuo followed by short speech by NJS, Mezivolu T. Therieh and member NJOA WokonoYhoshu. The programme was chaired by NJS, Yarenjungla Longkumer. 

The second session followed with presentation of reports from the executive members and discussion hour. The final session of the day was a farewell programme organized in honour of NJS, principal district and session judge (retd) Khape Koza. The program was chaired by principal district and session judge Tuensang, Victo Sema. Short speech was delivered by district and sessions judge Zunheboto, Neichochuyi Suyie.
