Thomas has not resigned, says his counsel
Contradicting Law Minister Veerappa Moily, Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) P J Thomas's counsel Wills Mathews today said Thomas has not resigned from his post.
"It is incorrect. Thomas has not resigned. We have not even received the copy of the judgment. We have to go through the judgment and study it in depth. After that we will think of the future course of action," Mathews said.
After the Supreme Court verdict, Moily said, "Thomas has resigned...the Supreme Court has also held his appointment as illegal." To a question on the apex court's rap on the government on Thomas' appointment, Moily said, "We respect the judgement. Other details we won't be able to say because we are yet to go through the judgement."
