Corruption is Like Computer Virus: Himachal Chief Justice

Shimla, Nov 12 (IANS): Himachal Pradesh High Court Chief Justice Kurian Joseph Saturday said corruption is like a computer virus and there is a need for "coordination among investigating agencies to jointly wage a war against it".

"Corruption is like a computer virus which goes on to destruct our system," Joseph said at a two-day workshop that began here in which experts of the judiciary, prosecution, forensic science, state police and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) are participating.

He stressed on the need to have concerted efforts of the judiciary, police, prosecution and forensics to combat the menace of corruption.

"There is a need for improvement in vigilance setup in the judiciary to uphold expectations of the common man," he added.

Justice Deepak Gupta said: "Corruption is not limited to acceptance of monetary benefits. Failing to perform the duties without fear or favour or to take decisions to appease others is also a form of corruption."
