(Press Statement by LOK MORCHA PUNJAB)

Lok Morcha Punjab expresses strong resentment and dismay at the conviction & sentencing of Dr. Binayak Sen and two others to life imprisonment on the charges of sedition & conspiracy (S.124 (A) & 120-B IPC) S. 8-(1), (2), (3) and (5) of the Chhattisgarh Special Public Safety Act and S. 39 (2) of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. Dr. Binayak Sen has dedicated his entire life for the cause of the people especially tribals. In a country, where even the head of Medical Council of India, entrusted with the responsibility of enforcing ethical conduct by medical profession, is caught taking bribe and most of his fellow professionals are minting money bleeding the people white, Dr Sen choose to serve the poor and malnutritioned tribal children. He resolutely opposed the repression let loose on the adivasi people under the banner of Salwa Judam and fought for democratic rights of the people. The state has got him convicted on the basis of false evidence. The main allegation against him was of being a courier of imprisoned Naxalite leader Naryan Sanyal. Even the jail authorities did not support this allegation. The rules of evidence were shamelessly changed to secure his conviction. Instead of the police proving the charges against him beyond any reasonable doubt, as the established law is, the onus was put on him and his co-accused Narayan Sanyal & Piyush Guha to prove their innocence. It was not a fair and judicious trial. It was a traversity of justice. Dr. Binayak Sen & his companios have been convicted and sentenced, violating all cannons of justice and the principles laid down in criminal jurisprudence and International covenants.

In this conspiracy, the BJP led Chattisgarh Govt and Congress-led Central Govt are equally involved. When the Home Ministry’s Notification, threatening the intellectuals and human rights activists to be punished under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, if they did not refrain from criticizing Operation Green Hunt, failed to have any visible impact, the State needed something more deterrent, more terrifying to silence them, to shock & awe them. Dr. Binayak Sen’s conviction is a sinister step in that direction. It is intended to be a warning to all those who espouse the cause of poor and oppressed tribals, who oppose imperialist plunder of India’s mineral wealth, who cherish human rights.

To win freedom for Dr. Binayak Sen & his companions, a strong and wide-based mass movement of the toiling people, i.e. peasants, agricultural labour, industrial workers, poor people, democratic & nationalist forces is required. We cannot & should not rely on the Indian rulers and the anti-people judicial system. A strong mass movement will not only guarantee freedom for Dr. Binayak Sen & his companions, but will also deter the Indian rulers from framing up any other people’s leader in future. Lok Morcha Punjab shall strive hard, and calls upon all revolutionary & democratic forces to build such a mass movement.

‘Free Dr Binayak Sen, Now!’

‘Free Dr Binayak Sen, Now!’

A Chhattisgarh court condemns the good doctor to life imprisonment. Let this brazen injustice not go unchallenged
Amit Sengupta Delhi

The horrifying verdict of life imprisonment for Dr Binayak Sen, accused of unimaginable crimes such as treason and sedition, has come as a real new low in the dirty quagmire of a litany of injustices in this fragmented and corrupt, largest democracy in the world. It will immediately polarise the civil society with a collective howl of protest against this brazen injustice and the recharged longing for justice so brazenly denied to someone called 'the good doctor' all over the world. The judgement will definitely sharpen the solidarity of all sensitive, secular and democratic opinion in India and across the world, and prove the brazenly undemocratic and fascistic character of the BJP regime in Chhattisgarh, who went about concocting false charges against Dr Sen, despite almost no tangible evidence.

Raipur District and Sessions Court judge BP Varma on Friday found Dr Sen guilty on a variety of counts and also under the Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act.

According to the latest dispatch from PUCL General Secretary Kavita Srivastava from Raipur: "By now you all must have got to know about the conviction of Dr Binayak Sen u/s of 120(B), 124(A) of the IPC and 1,2,3,5, Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act and Sec 39 (2) of the UAPA (2004 amended). Binayak was taken away immediately into custody. He was extremely equanimous. It was an emotional moment for Dr Sen's daughters and brother Dipanker Sen. His wife, Professor Ilina Sen, is upset but thinking ahead...

Said Prof Sen, "It is a sad day for me. It is a sadder day for Indian democracy. They had no evidence, nothing to prove the charges. They even termed me an ISI agent (ISI turned out to be the Indian Social Institute in Delhi). This is injustice and it's for all to see."

"This judgement is really unacceptable and unconstitutional. After all, two of the laws under which he has been convicted are themselves being questioned as far as their constitutional validity is concerned... We need to really build a campaign again. There was really no evidence," said Kavita Srivastava.

Dr Binayak Sen will appeal in the High Court at the earliest, though the court, in an uncanny timing of the judgement, will go on vacation from December 25. The other two co-accused, Piyush Guha and Narayan Sanyal, have also been convicted. Some extra sections have been applied to Sanyal, accused of being a Maoist leader.

Most human rights activists, academics and even journalists who have covered the long imprisonment of Dr Sen in the past have reacted with utmost horror at the sheer injustice of the judgement, despite such widespread public opinion and factual evidence against the false cases against Dr Sen by the BJP-led regime in Chhattisgarh. "This is bizarre, shocking, inhuman, unjust, absolutely incomprehensible. How can the judge do that? How can they so publicly demonstrate such irrational behaviour? Such brazen injustice?" - this is the kind of remorse and anger flowing out of all over the country after the shocking judgment.

From university campuses to newspaper offices to middle-class homes and power corridors across India, this is a judgement which is seen to be clearly destroying the last edifices of the public perception of the Indian justice system, the faith in the judiciary and the idea of justice, and the faith which the civil society has on the edifices of democracy. "All kinds of scamsters and mass murderers are all over the power establishment and a man who lived and worked for the poor all this life, he is charged with sedition. What utter nonsense is this," said a JNU student.

Said Thomas Kocherry, leader of the National Fishermen's Federation, in a bulk email from Cochin: "Let us send out protest letters to the Chhattisgarh court and the state government and send out this to the whole world. It is unjust. An innocent man is arrested again. Is there any justice in this country? We have to keep protesting till Binayak Sen gets justice. We cannot keep quiet. We have to fight for the rights of the people. We cannot organise the people. This is the character of the BJP government in Chhattisgarh. Another Emergency is in the making in MP."

Dr Sen is currently a professor at the prestigious Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore, of which he is an eminent alumni. The entire alumni of CMC had petitioned for his release during his imprisonment. At least 22 noble prize winners from all over the world had sought his immediate freedom and lauded the exemplary work Dr Sen had in the medical sciences, in popularising it among the poorest of the poor, and in providing the best of treatment to the impoverished adivasis in the Hindi heartland. Distinguished artists, academics, filmmakers and writers like Sudhir Mishra, Noam Chomsky, Romila Thapar, Arundhati Roy, Sumit Sarkar, Tanika Sarkar, Dilip Simeon, Praful Bidwai, Sanjay Kak, among others, had campaigned and petitioned for his freedom. Even Sri Sri Ravishankar had visited him at Raipur jail and sought his release, even as singers like Rabbi and Indian Ocean, and students from all across India and the world, organised protests, campaigns and concerts demanding freedom for the good doctor. In fact, the website became an international forum for a vigorous and relentless campaign.

"This campaign will become national and global soon. This is certain. We start with a list of all those who have not been given life imprisonment for sedition and treason, including scamsters, criminals and mass murderers who call the shots in the Indian power establishment. We all know their names. Their names will be put up on the website. And the mass protests all over the world against the brazen injustice will start from now, right now, at this moment," said Satya Sivaraman, journalist, filmmaker and activist, who was one of the key catalysts in the campaign last time. This, when news is still trickling in, and a global and national web and sms campaign is already underway. Indeed, TV channels are already moving in with the news.

'Free Dr Binayak Sen.' 'Freedom for the good doctor.' Surely, the old slogans are coming back.

Binayak Sen, 2 others sentenced to life

Binayak Sen, 2 others sentenced to life


Rights activist Binayak Sen, Naxal ideologue Narayan Sanyal and Kolkata businessman Piyush Guha were on Friday convicted for sedition and sentenced to life imprisonment for colluding with Maoists to establish a network to fight the state.

Additional District and Sessions Judge B.P. Verma held the trio, who were present in the jam-packed courtroom, guilty under provisions of section 124A (sedition)and 120 B (conspiracy) of IPC and Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act.

The 58-year-old Dr. Sen, a paediatrician by training and vice-president of the People’s Union of Civil Liberties, had been accused by the prosecution of acting as courier for Sanyal, who was in jail, by carrying his messages and letters to the underground Maoists.

Dr. Sen was arrested on May 14, 2007 from Bilaspur and was in jail for two years before being granted bail by the Supreme Court in May last year.

Sanyal, 67, was arrested in Khammam in Andhra Pradesh in January 2006, while Guha, 35, was nabbed a year later in May. Both have been in jail with the prosecution having charged them with helping Maoists to set up a network.

Mahendra Dubey, Dr. Sen’s lawyer, said they will appeal against the verdict. “This kind of judgement was not expected by us,” he said.

All the three were sentenced to life imprisonment under sections 124A and 120(B) of IPC. The trio were also found guilty under Section 8(1) of Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act and awarded two years imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 1,000.

They were sentenced to one year imprisonment and Rs. 1000 fine under section 8(2) of the state Act, to three years prison term and a fine of Rs. 1000 under section 8(3) of that Act and to five years imprisonment and fine of Rs. 1000 under its Section 8(5), Mr. Dubey said.

All the three were also found guilty under provisions of Prevention of Unlawful Activities Act and sentenced upto five years jail term and a fine of Rs. 1,000 each. Sanyal was also awarded 10 years imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 2,000 under Section 20 of the Act.

The sentences will run concurrently, Mr. Dubey said.

Dr. Sen’s wife Elina and rights activists expressed “shock” and “disappointment” over the verdict.

“It is completely irrational. It is not a judgement that I would agree with,” Ms. Elina Sen said. “We will take whatever legal recourse is available to us. We will not be able to do it immediately because higher courts are on vacation.”

Ms. Elina Sen, who was present in the court during the trial, claimed, “Not a single piece of evidence came up to support this kind of conviction — sedition and conspiracy against the state. I hope justice will prevail.”

Swami Agnivesh said the verdict was “unacceptable“.

“I find it unacceptable that Sen has been charged with sedition. We will appeal in the High Court. This judgement has definitely come as a shock to all human rights activists and people who have been working for the poor,” he said.

Amit Banerjee, another defence lawyer, claimed, “There is no evidence against Sanyal that he is a Naxalite.”

Press Release by PUCL on Dr. Binayak Sen's Conviction

Delhi/ Raipur,

The People's Union for Civil Liberties is deeply disappointed at the miscarriage of justice reflected in the judgement of Raipur Additional District and Sessions Judge B. P. Verma sentencing our National Vice President Dr. Binayak Sen to life imprisonment under charges of sedition 124 (A) of the IPC read with conspiracy (120-B IPC) along with convicting him concurrently u/s 8-(1), (2), (3) and (5) of the Chhattisgarh Vishesh Jan Suraksha Adhiniyam,2005 (Chhattisgarh Special Public Safety Act, 2005) and u/sec 39 (2) of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 2004 (amended). It is a sad day for the PUCL and all human rights defenders in the country and a black day for the Indian Judiciary.

Dr. Binayak Sen was charged with being a courier of letters from co-accused Narayan Sanyal to Piyush Guha. All through the trial not a single Jail authority appearing as prosecution witness confirmed this. In fact, there was no substantive evidence to confirm any of the allegations of the prosecution.

The PUCL holds that Dr Binayak Sen is a victim of the vendetta of the Chhattisgarh government for his bold and principled opposition to state sponsored vigilante operation Salwa Judum, which has been held unacceptable even by the Supreme Court. His conviction is one more example of the state succeeding in securing the conviction of an innocent person on the basis of false evidence. It is an occasion for the nation to demand drastic reform of the criminal justice system to ensure that it is not manipulated by the state to persecute, prosecute and victimize innocent persons.

The PUCL will continue to work towards Dr. Binayak Sen release and take all legal measures in this regard. It will also work towards building public opinion against the ongoing persecution of activists and Human Rights Defenders in the country.
