Tough time ahead for Jaya as Supreme Court commence hearing DA Case from 2nd Feb

jaya heroJanuary,8,2016: The Supreme Court on Friday decided to commence final hearing from February 2 on appeal filed by the Karnataka government against acquittal of AIADMK chief and Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa and others in the disproportionate assets case.

“We will start the hearing from February 2 and will hear the matter on February 3 and 4 as well,” a bench comprising justices PC Ghose and Amitava Roy said.

The bench, meanwhile, asked the counsel for both the parties to file the “issues” highlighting main points to be considered within the next two weeks.

Earlier the apex court had agreed to conduct day-to-day hearing on the appeals filed against the Karnataka high court verdict acquitting Jayalalithaa and three others in the case.

On July 27, the apex court had issued notices on Karnataka government’s appeal seeking stay of the high court judgement, to Jayalalithaa, her close aide Sasikala and two of her relatives, VN Sudhakaran and Elavarasi, and asked them to file their replies within eight weeks.

The apex court had allowed an intervention application by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy in the matter and had asked him to file issues he wished to press before it.

The Karnataka HC had on May 11, 2015 ruled that AIADMK supremo’s conviction by special court suffered from infirmity and was not sustainable in law, clearing decks for her return as Tamil Nadu chief minister.

Karnataka government, in its plea against the May 11 order, claimed that HC erred in computing disproportionate assets of the AIADMK leader. The Karnataka government also asked whether the high court had “erred in law” by according benefit of doubt to Jayalalithaa in pursuance of a Supreme Court judgement holding that accused can be acquitted if his or her disproportionate assets were to the extent of 10%.

The state government had also claimed that the high court has erred in overruling preliminary objections raised by it and added that the accused had filed their appeals against conviction without impleading Karnataka as a party.

The special court had in 2014 held Jayalalithaa guilty of corruption and sentenced her to four years imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs 100 crore.
