polity question

Why is a president is immune to criminal proceedings but not civil proceedings? I know 2 months notice is given in civil. But does that mean even notice cannot be given in criminl prcdg?

  • These nuances are there to make MCQs complicated, not Right to Vote and blah blah blah ...

  • No notice is required in criminal cases. There are warrants for criminal cases and being the head of the democracy if you have to appear before criminal courts whats the use....already there are ample cases many being fraudulent..

    @rpkr I believe that's correct. The President cannot be given notice regarding criminal proceedings against him. Why - Because I think the Head of state is required for the state to function. If the President in whose name, laws are made, actions are executed, people are appointed, is behind bars or is a suspect in a criminal case, then that sends a wrong message.

    So how to proceed against the President with a criminal case? This is what one of my teachers told - If the case is a substantial one and there is enough evidence, there would be popular demand for his removal by agitations, protest etc. Then Parliament can proceed with Impeachment process. Once impeached, criminal case can be filed.

    I don't know if it's true or there is another way. Let others share their ideas.
