Supreme Court Issues Notice To Jayalalithaa Over Acquittal Petition

On Monday Supreme Court pursued an acknowledgement from Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa along with three others. Their pleads registered against orders of Karnataka High Court on exonerating them in disproportionate assets (DA) case. Notices were issued by justices R K Agrawal and P C Ghose to Jayalalithaa’s close advisers Sasikala with two of her relatives Elavarasi and V N Sudhakaran to file their replies within eight weeks. In an application, Karnataka government entreated orders of judgement but failed to come up for hearing on Monday.

Supreme Court notice to Jayalalithaa

The Karnataka HC judgement which was made on 11th May cleared the sentence of (AIADMK)  All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary and the special court endured from frailty which was not feasible in law to clear the allegations for her return as Chief Minister to Tamil Nadu. Against 11th May verdict, Karnataka government had been into grounds of the state government’s prosecuting firm who do not make a party before High Court. Mr. Joseph Aristotle who filed the petition claimed High Court made a miss calculation in figuring the disproportionate assets (DC) of the AIADMK leader.

State government questioned petition asking whether the High Court erred in law on pursuing Jayalalithaa with Supreme Court judgment on acquittal of his or her disproportionate assets. It alleged that High Court erred the law in overthrowing the preliminary objects which were raised by the state government. It also added that the accused people filed their appeals against stance without Karnatak’s litigate. Last year special high court held guilt corruption on Jayalalithaa and made verdict of four year
imprisonment imposing Rs. 100 crore fine.
