Judge Dalveer Bhandari, who is currently a member of the International Court of Justice, and who was previously at he Supreme Court of India (2005-2012), is cited several times in the book ”THUS SPAKE THEIR LORDSHIPS!”, e.g. on p. 24: “Those who indulge in immoral acts like perjury, prevarication and motivated falsehoods have to be appropriately dealt with, without which it would not be possible for any court to administer justice in the true sense and to the satisfaction of those who approach it in the hope that truth would ultimately prevail. People would have faith in courts when they would find that truth alone triumphs in the courts.” (in Maria Margarida Sequeira Fernandes V. Erasmo Jack de Sequeira, (2012) 5 SCC 370, para 45.
