A Delhi court Monday dismissed senior Congress leader Motilal Vora’s plea seeking to restrain BJP MP Subramanian Swamy from tweeting about the National Herald case, in which Swamy is the complainant against Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi and others.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal rejected Vora’s plea, also an accused in the case, saying there was nothing to show the tweets caused any damage to the trial, or any prejudice to the court. Vora, in his application, had alleged that Swamy was trying to influence the court proceedings with his tweets.
“As far as these tweets are concerned, these cannot be said to interfere or obstruct the administration of justice nor can be said to prejudice the due course of any judicial proceedings…,” ACMM Samar Vishal said.
The BJP leader had denied Vora’s allegation and asserted that he had “every right to tweet”.
