A Special Court in Bangalore on Saturday adjourned to June 16 the hearing on an application by AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa seeking documents on the basis of which the state government wanted to withdraw the London Hotel case, one of the disproportionate asset cases filed against her.
When the matter came up before judge I S Antin, Jayalalithaa's counsel Navaneet Krishnan argued his client was entitled for the documents in accordance with the law. He also said so far the third investigation report had not been filed in the London Hotel case.
Disagreeing with the contention of defense counsel, the Judge questioned the locus standi of the accused in seeking such documents.
On April 30, the Tamil Nadu Government filed an application before the court seeking permission to withdraw the London Hotel case in which Jayalalithaa and four others, including former AIADMK MP, T T V Dinakaran, are the accused.
Jayalalithaa had on May 25 moved an application seeking documents on the strength of which the Tamil Nadu government was withdrawing the case against her.
