‘Seentenced to Death’ Prisoners get a Chance to File Review Plea in Supreme Court

Untitled-5The Supreme Court on Tuesday framed a new rule to hear the review plea of the death convicts will be held openly and the lawyers will be allowed to argue.

The apex court also made clear that the review petition will be heard by a three-judge court.

The Supreme Court has also offered the death convicts whose review plea was dismissed earlier, to file a fresh request with the court within a month to be heard according to the new frame of rules, thus providing them an opportunity to question the verdict.

The new frame of rules was passed in a bench of five judges with majority of 4-1.

All the death convicts will get a chance with this ruling to apply for the fresh review and argue the court in open.
