P.J. Thomas appeals to Supreme Court

Thomas, whose appointment as the head of the Central Vigilance Commission was set aside by the apex court, said that "distorted" reporting and telecasting of the court proceedings that were "prejudicial" to his interest should be inquired into. He said the reporting had termed him "tainted" and one of the persons who had "shamed India".

The former CVC appealed to the court to initiate contempt proceedings against all those found guilty of publishing or telecasting the distorted version of the court proceedings while it heard a petition by the Centre for Public Interest Litigation challenging his appointment on the grounds of a criminal case against him in Kerala relating to the import of palm oil at inflated rates.
