Achuthanandan and former legislator KJ Alphons had moved the high court in May after the Thrissur vigilance court found that the chief minister had no role in the import of palm oil from Malaysia. But it asked the vigilance court to speed up the case.

Chandy was the finance minister in K Karunakaran’s government in the 1990s when the palm oil controversy surfaced.
