The Supreme Court Tuesday dismissed Subramanian Swamys petition seeking contempt proceedings against Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karthi Chidambaram for allegedly threatening him with a defamation suit in Singapore to prevent him from pursuing the 2G case in India.
A Bench of Justices G S Singhvi and K S Radhakrishnan held that Swamy failed to make out a case for contempt under the law.
It noted Swamy failed to establish a link between Singaporean Venture Advantage Strategic Consulting Pvt Ltd,allegedly controlled by Karthi,which filed the defamation suit against him in Singapore for publishing some material on internet,and his pursuing Aircel-Maxis deal in the Supreme Court.
Swamys petition claimed that Advantage Strategic Consulting Singapore Pvt Ltd,a company substantially owned and controlled by Karthi,arranged to file a defamation suit against him in a Singapore court. He alleged that by filing the suit,they sought to obstruct administration of justice.
