SC did not advance date of hearing in Jayalalithaa’s DA case

NEW DELHI, Dec 11:
The Supreme Court today refused to advance the date of hearing, already fixed on December 18, on a plea of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in the disproportionate assets case in which she has been awarded four years jail term.
A bench headed by Chief H L Dattu, which had granted bail to the AIADMK leader on October 17, however, had not disposed of her bail plea and kept it pending to ensure that she files the entire paper book and records before the Karnataka High Court within two months.
“If the paper book is not filed within two months, then we won’t give you even a single day more,” the bench, while posting the matter for December 18, had said.
Senior advocate Fali S Nariman, appearing for 66-year-old Jayalalithaa, today sought preponement of the hearing. The court, however, did not allow it.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, who also mentioned the matter, has sought the entire documents from the counsel of the former Chief Minister as he intends to contest her appeal against conviction before the Karnataka High Court.
“Nariman has assured me that he will be providing me the documents,” Swamy told reporters outside the courtroom.
The apex court had granted bail to Jayalalithaa on a condition that her appeal against conviction in the High Court should be completed in five months. (PTI)
