Acharya on verdict of Jaya’s appeal


Special Public Prosecutor in Jayalalitha’s disproportionate assets case B.V.Acharya has observed that the proceedings before the Karnataka High Court hearing AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa’s appeal turned out to be a “one-sided affair” as the prosecuting State, Karnataka, was neither a party nor was it heard.

Commenting on the verdict, Acharya said:

“The entire appeal proceedings were conducted without making Karnataka State a party, though it was a necessary legal requirement. Counsel for the accused were allowed to make oral arguments for nearly two months, but no prosecutor authorised by Karnataka was present during such arguments.

The apex court itself had declared the appointment of G. Bhavani Singh as SPP by Tamil Nadu illegal and asked the High Court to ignore his submissions.

The Supreme Court gave the Karnataka government only a day’s time to file a written statement. We were denied permission to make oral arguments which were crucial. The principles of natural justice were denied to the prosecution during the appeal proceedings. I was only ek din ka sultan in the appeal."
