Jaya wealth case: Hearing put off

A special court here on Saturday adjourned to June 16, the hearing on an application by former Tamil  Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, who had sought documents on the basis of which the Tamil Nadu government wanted to withdraw the London Hotel case, one of the disproportionate asset cases filed against her.

The matter had come up before Judge I S Antin. Jayalalithaa's counsel Navaneet Krishnan contended that his client was entitled to the documents in accordance with the law.
He also said that so far, the third investigation report had not been filed in the London Hotel case.

The Judge disagreed with the contention of the defense counsel, and questioned the locus standi of the accused in seeking such documents.

On April 30, the Tamil Nadu Government had filed an application before the Court seeking permission to withdraw the London Hotel case in which Jayalalithaa and four others, including former AIADMK MP T T V Dinakaran, are the accused.

On May 25, Jayalalithaa had moved an application seeking documents on the strength of which the Tamil Nadu government was withdrawing the case against her.
