Court warns ED for not producing witness in 2G

As the prosecution failed to bring witnesses in the money laundering case of the 2G scam for yet another time, a special CBI court on Monday warned the Enforcement Directorate  that the prosecution will be subjected to “exemplary cost” if it fails to ensure presence of witness in court in the future.

Passing the order, Special CBI Judge O P Saini noted that the prosecution failed to ensure presence of its witnesses earlier also, saying that entire day of the court was lost due to non-availability of witnesses as this court had no other work than to hold the trial of the 2G spectrum allocation cases.

“It is impressed upon the prosecution to summon two or three witnesses for each date so that presence of at least one or two witnesses is assured in the court, as almost all witnesses are from out station. Since no other matter is pending before this court, the whole day is lost on account of non-availability of witnesses,” the court said in its order.

 “If the prosecution fails to procure the presence of witnesses in future, it shall be subjected to exemplary cost for wasting the time of the court as it has happened earlier also on many occasions,” the judge said and fixed the matter for Tuesday.
