2G scam: Swamy slams law ministry


“It is regrettable that law officers of the government had failed to apprise the PM of the law of the land that he must decide on the sanction question only on the material provided by me,” Swamy, who sought Raja’s prosecution, told the Supreme Court in his nine-page affidavit, submitted to the court’s registry.

The Prime Minister’s affidavit to the court on Saturday had disclosed that the Law Ministry had advised him to wait for the CBI to gather the oral and documentary evidence before deciding on the question of prosecuting Raja.

“The PM made independent inquiries on the substance of my material provided in the these letters, which is against the judgments of this court,” Swamy said.
