Karnataka govt moves SC against Jayalalithaa’s acquittal in DA case


jayalalitha newThe Karnataka government today moved the Supreme Court against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s acquittal in the disproportionate assets case. The state government in its appeal, filed through advocate Joseph Aristotle, has sought setting aside of the Karnataka High Court order and also pleaded that the disqualification of the AIADMK chief be restored. He also alleged that he did not get ample opportunity to put forth its case before the High Court.

The Karnataka High Court acquitted Jayalalithaa and three others in the case on 11th of last month, setting aside a special court order of September 2014 sentencing them to four years in prison. In its verdict, the court said her conviction by the special court suffered from infirmity and was not sustainable in law. The special court had last year held Jayalalithaa guilty of corruption and sentenced her to four years imprisonment and imposed a fine of 100 crore rupees.

On 1st of this month, the Karnataka government decided to appeal against the High Court verdict acquitting Jayalalithaa in the case, which cleared the way for her comeback as Chief Minister. The move to challenge Jayalalithaa’s acquital came barely a day after she started her campaign for the upcoming by-election at the RK Nagar Assembly constituency yesterday.
