New Delhi, Sep 30: Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily backed the government decision to drop the case against Ottavio Quattrocchi, saying that there was nothing left to do in the case.
"The case is going on since very long...If Quattrocchi could be brought back or any conviction could be held... and the case could be pursued with a positive result," Moily was quoted as saying by the TV channels.
He said, "All this has been examined. But ultimately it was found that nothing was positive."
Pointing out to a court ruling in 2002 which termed the case as "a waste of time", Moily said the then ruling BJP-led NDA coalition had not filed any appeal in the case during its tenure.
