Says they have very little chance as SC won’t intervene with trial process in Herald case
New Delhi : BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who filed a caveat in the Supreme Court urging it not to pass any order without hearing his side in the National Herald Case, said on Tuesday said that Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi are out of luck now as the apex court won’t intervene with the trial process.
“Due process of law will begin. If they want to try their luck in the Supreme Court, I think they have very little chance, because two courts have held that there is a prima facie case. So, the Supreme Court would not like to intervene with the trial process,” Swamy told ANI.
“The magistrate Gomti Manoja went into every document. She had independent witnesses. She subjected me to examination thoroughly for 15 months, she considered my complaint and then she issued it … all during the UPA period,” he added.
Further clearing his stand, Swamy said that he will point out previous judgments where the Supreme Court has never entertained when two courts have held there is a prima facie case.
“I am working on the possibility that there has been money laundering, because the people who made the decisions are the same in all the three situations. Young Indian — Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Motilal Vora, Oscar Fernandez. In the Congress party, th president, vice-president, treasurer, general secretary, they are the same people. In National Herald, Motilal Vora is the chairman of the board of directors and Oscar Fernandez is the director. So, they are all the same people, so there must have been money laundering. Young Indian has only Rs 5 lakh share capital, how did it get Rs 5000-crore property from another company?” he asked.
