New Delhi, Oct 21 (ANI): Union Law Minister today said that the Government intends to come out with a comprehensive bill to deal with complaints of corruption against judges, and added that the procedure of appointment of judges to higher judiciary will be given a fresh look.

The Law Minister said on Wednesday that the Government would not like to see that any 'tainted' person becoming a judge.

However, Moliy refused to be drawn into a discussion on Karnataka Chief Justice P D Dinakaran elevation to the Supreme Court, which has been kept in abeyance over allegations of land grabbing.

"Already there is a memorandum of procedure (on appointment of judges) which we are going by as of today. I am not reiterating that the same thing will continue. May be, we have to revisit the procedure. Whatever we do, we need to take the judiciary into full confidence," he said.

Moily said the independence of judiciary without accountability has no meaning, no significance and there was need to resurrect its credibility. (ANI)
