Black Money Issue: SC hearing on Jul 28

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 4: The Supreme Court has declared that it will be hearing the black money issue petition on July 28. The petition accuses the government of inaction in bringing back the black money stashed in the foreign banks.

The centre had filed an affidavit on the issue on May 2 to which the petitioners Ram Jethmalani, senior advocate, and five others have file a comprehensive rejoinder. The court allowed the petitioners to file the same without issuing a notice to the government.

The bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan has said that the government can respond to the petition filed on Monday, May 4.

The petition reportedly accuses the government of not honouring the promise it made on Apr 22 to file the affidavit within 48 hours. The petition also objected to the point in the government affidavit that alleges that the petitioners had links with the BJP.
