MARUTI WORKER RAMBILAS SERVING LIFE TERM GRANTED BAILNovember 25, 2021
Comrade Rambilas, Maruti Suzuki Workers Union, has been granted bail by the Punjab & Haryana High Court on 24th Nov 2021.
He is serving a life sentence (with 10 more of his MSWU comrades) since 2012 for the right to unionise following the historic Maruti Suzuki Workers Struggle that commenced ten years ago on 4th June 2011.
The court had called it an ‘exemplary punishment’ needed to restore investor sentiment and the Maruti CEO (quite aptly) RS Shrivastava termed it a ‘class war’.
Facing the oppressive sentence, two workers, Pavan Dahiya and Jialal, died tragic deaths in Feb and June this year.
The hearing of remaining ten workers is scheduled in Jan-Feb 2022. Senior advocate APS Deol is handling the workers’ case.
Free the Maruti13! Free the Pricol8! Free all political prisoners!
