Bengaluru, July 7: The Karnataka Law Department will hold a meeting to comply with the office objections raised by the Supreme Court filing branch in connection with the appeal filed challenging the acquittal of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in the disproportionate assets case.
The objections are a normal administrative procedure and after the same is complied with, the matter will come up for hearing next week, an officer in the law department informed OneIndia.
The petition will be clubbed with the one that was filed by DMK leader K Anbazhagan yesterday. There are certain procedures that need to be followed after which we will push for an early hearing, the officer in the law department also informed.
A patently wrong judgment
In the appeal that was filed yesterday by the DMK leader, K Anbazhagan, it is stated that the order of the High Court acquitting Jayalalithaa was patently wrong.
While seeking a stay on the order of the High Court, the appeal by the DMK leader also sought to reverse the order in so far as Saskikala Natrajan, Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran. Jayalalithaa's three aides too were acquitted by the High Court in this case.
The appeal states that the High Court ought not to have interfered with the order of the trial court. The appeal contends that the trial court had delivered a well considered verdict and the same should not have been reversed.
Further the DML leader also states that the High Court should not have accepted the gifts of the value of Rs.1,50,00,000 received by Jayalalithaa as income as the same was not from a lawful source.
Further it was stated that that the High Court got carried away by the inflated loan amount of Rs 24,17,31,274 and came to a wrong conclusion by committing an arithmetic error.
There has been an abetment and conspiracy and funds were remitted to the accounts of 34 bogus companies with 100 bank accounts.
