Satyam probe almost over, says govt

“The investigation as far as CBI and Ministry of Corporate Affairs is concerned they are more or less over, and may be some minor things still to be done,” Khurshid told reporters on the sidelines of a national conference on corporate governance here.

Material for prosecution

“I think we have got enough material for prosecution and that’s why a chargesheet is filed. We have permission to file additional chargesheets on information that’s made available in last few weeks and it will be done,” he said. The minister said for expeditious prosecution a fast-track court has been sought from the High Court.

“The High Court in principle has agreed to do that and as soon as the court will notify, the matter will proceed further,” he said.  “There are problems for them as far the American litigation is concerned. They are in touch with us on how we can be of further help. We certainly will examine it. They seem to be doing well and we are happy that they are doing well,” he added.  Reacting to reports that the ministry was not satisfied with the investigation report submitted by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) and it had been asked to carry out another round of investigations, Khurshid said, “there’s no question on not being satisfied with the report.” Further, he said that this was a preliminary report and not a final report.
