The court told Mr Swamy that the list of witnesses, which he had filed with his application, for summoning some senior CBI officials and other public servants to press his case would be allowed only after he could explain the relevance of their testimony
New Delhi: A Delhi court today allowed Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy to depose as a witness and lead further evidence in support of his private complaint against Union home minister P Chidambaram in the second generation (2G) spectrum case, reports PTI.
“Complainant Dr Subramanian Swamy is permitted to recall himself as complainant witness one for leading further evidence,” special CBI judge OP Saini said.
The court told Mr Swamy that the list of witnesses, which he had filed with his application, for summoning some senior Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials and other public servants to press his case would be allowed only after he could explain the relevance of their testimony.
“Other witnesses as mentioned in the list of witnesses filed with the application shall be allowed to be summoned only after relevance of their testimony is explained by the complainant (Mr Swamy),” the court said.
The judge said Mr Swamy could lead evidence in support of his complaint as he has referred to the role of other conspirators in it.
“In view of the facts that complainant was not aware of the identity of additional proposed accused (s) at the time of filing of complaint, but has now come to know about it, he is not prevented in law from leading evidence on this point, more so, when he has referred to the role of other conspirators in his complaint,” the judge said.
The court directed Mr Swamy to appear in the witness box on 17th December to lead further evidence in support of his complaint against Mr Chidambaram.
The court had on 3rd December reserved its order on Mr Swamy’s plea seeking permission to examine himself afresh, senior CBI officials and others to prove that Mr Chidambaram had taken a joint decision with former telecom minister A Raja regarding fixing the price for 2G spectrum.
He had claimed that Mr Chidambaram, as the then finance minister, had permitted Swan Telecom and Unitech, who had secured the licences, to sell their shares to foreign companies.
