BJP MP Subramanian Swamy Thursday told a Delhi court that he would submit the list of witnesses, who are likely to depose against Congress president Sonia Gandhi, vice-president Rahul Gandhi and other accused in the National Herald case, on July 16.
Swamy told Metropolitan Magistrate Lovleen that he has not been able to access all the documents, including those from central ministries, which he would rely upon while submitting his witness list.

“I need to know the documents that I would rely upon before submitting the final list of witnesses. The Delhi High Court has reserved its order on summoning of the documents… I would submit the list of witnesses on July 16,” Swamy told the court.
On April 18, the Delhi High Court had reserved its order on a plea filed by Gandhis and other accused in the case against the trial court’s order on summoning of the documents from finance and corporate affairs ministries, those relating to the defunct National Herald newspaper and the balance sheet of the Congress party.
Swamy has alleged that Congress leaders were involved in cheating and breach of trust in the acquisition of AJL.
