Exclusive: Delhi High Court Requests Submissions in 2G Spectrum Case Regarding Appeals

Parties must file brief written submissions to challenge a decision in a higher court.

The high court will take up the ED’s money laundering case, in which all of the accused were cleared by the special court, after the concluding arguments in the CBI’s main case. On December 21, 2017, a special court cleared Raja, DMK MP Kanimozhi, and other defendants in the scam-related CBI and ED proceedings.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma has directed the parties to submit brief written arguments of not more than five pages.
  • The CBI had already concluded its arguments about the subject of leave to appeal, but due to the new judge, it will now need to re-argue the case.
  • To formally contest a ruling in a higher court, a party may ask a lower court for leave to appeal.

In response to petitions that question the convicts’ exoneration in the 2G spectrum distribution case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the former telecom minister A Raja, and others have been ordered to provide information. According to reports, Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma ordered that each party submit a concise written argument of no more than five pages.

The CBI had already concluded its arguments about the subject of leave to appeal, but because of the new judge, it will now need to re-argue the case. To formally contest a decision in a higher court, a party may ask a lower court for leave to appeal. The judge slated the matter for May 22 and 23, as the CBI had urged that the case be scheduled for daily hearings as soon as feasible.

Prior to his retirement on November 30, Justice Brijesh Sethi, who had been managing the case on a daily basis, pulled it from his board on November 23 owing to a lack of time. Before he departed, Justice Sethi rendered judgment on a number of petitions and applications.

After the conclusion of the closing arguments in the CBI’s main case, the high court will review the ED’s money laundering case, in which all of the accused were exonerated by the special court. On December 21, 2017, a special court cleared defendants in the CBI and ED’s fraud investigation, including Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi.

The three other top executives of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (RADAG), Gautam Doshi, Surendra Pipara, and Hari Nair, as well as R. K. Chandolia, a former telecom secretary, and Sanjay Chandra, the managing director of Unitech Ltd., were all exonerated by the special court.

Swan Telecom is promoted by Kusegaon Fruits and Vegetables Pvt Ltd. directors Shahid Balwa, Vinod Goenka, and Asif Balwa.
