International law a tool for protection of human rights: CJI
NEW DELHI: Chief Justice of India (CJI) TS Thakur on Saturday stressed on the importance of international law as an “effective instrument” for protection of human rights and environment in the face of emerging global scenarios.
“The world is coming closer to providing a unified system of enforcement of law.... We must be aware of what is happening in the world, prepare for it with an ability to deal with them, he said.
While addressing a seminar on ‘Principles of The Engagement of Domestic Courts with International Law’, CJI said decisions of the courts in one country would lose their efficacy unless the regimes in other countries respected them but added that the duty of the Indian state to follow the international law has to be read harmoniously with the provisions of the Constitution.
