Good Morning Speakasians,
It’s been a while since I have been able to post my updates mainly because I have been having a series of meetings and co coordinating various activities all related to our battle for survival.
Coming straight to the point of updating my Speakasian Family as to the current legal position in the various matters, I wish to summarize as follows:
1. The AISPA Writ filed in the Mumbai High Court CRWP/3611/2011 was heard on 9th December and later on 14th December, on both the occasions after 5pm only because the court took cognizance of the importance of the matter.
2. In the last hearing the EOW objected to AISPA being the party on the ground that AISPA was not named in the FIR. EOW also wanted the WRIT to be dismissed on the grounds that the complainant (Navneet Khosla) was not a party respondent.
3. The Hon. High Court is seized of the matter and without taking the option of dismissing the WRIT, sensing the importance of the matter ordered AISPA to suitably amend the petition.
4. The matter is now posted for hearing on the 22nd December, 2011. The WRIT has been amended and is being amended further under the advice of the Hon. High Court.
5. I wish to remind all the Speakasians that this WRIT has been filed against the EOW and its atrocities in the SAOL matter.
6. Mr. Melwyn Crasto’s bail was rejected by the Learned Magistrate. The bail application is now filed in the Hon’ble Session’s court and will come up for hearing on 30th December, 2011. This is one delay which is excruciatingly painful
7. Mr. Ashish Dandekar was sent to Judicial Custody by the learned Magistrate. His bail application was filed and was heard on 17th December, 2011. The matter is now posted for orders on 20th December, 2011.
8. SLP 7509 and 7510 of 2011 in the Hon. Supreme Court, relating to quashing of FIR in Andhra Pradesh, could not be heard as the notices could not be served due to some administrative issues. The SLP’s will now be heard sometime in last week January or first week of February 2012.
9. The above SLP’s are filed against the CB CID AP and the NGO “Corporate Fraud Watch”.
10. Hon. Mr. Justice Lahoti ji Mediation meet will be heard sooner than we all expect. The Progress in this mediation meet is more than positive in our favour. The swift pace of the progress is due to the proactive manner in which both SAOL and HVP have represented themselves before the Hon. Mediator.
11. We all know that RBI and CBDT (IT Dept) have both already come before the Mediator. I am sure, as per the submissions of the EOW before the Mumbai High Court in the last hearing on the 14th December, 2011, the EOW will surely come before the Mediator in the third Mediation meeting.
