The apex court said the issue of black money has to be taken seriously and the state is primarily responsible to make all efforts to bring back into the country such wealth and punish people who have stashed away money in foreign banks
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday appointed a high-level special investigation team (SIT) headed by former apex court judge BP Jeevan Reddy to monitor the investigation and the steps being taken to bring back black money stashed away in foreign banks, reports PTI.
Besides justice Reddy, who will be the chairman of the SIT, the apex court also appointed its former judge, justice MB Shah as the vice-chairman of the panel.
A bench comprising justices B Sudershan Reddy and SS Nijjar directed that the high-level committee (HLC) constituted by the government to look into the issue of black money would 'forthwith' be a part of the SIT.
The bench also directed the government to disclose the names of all the persons who have been issued show cause notices by the authorities in connection with the probe into the black money issue.
The court, however, made it clear that the authorities would not disclose the names of those who have not been investigated in connection with deposits made in foreign banks including Liechtenstein bank.
The court passed the order on a petition filed by eminent jurist Ram Jethmalani and others seeking directions to the government to track black money stashed away abroad and bring it back.
The court also asked the SIT to submit a comprehensive action plan to deal with cases relating to the black money issue.
Justifying its decision to constitute the SIT, the bench said that in previous cases also the court has been passing such orders to fulfil its constitutional obligation.
The court also said that it is not possible for it to be involved in day-to-day investigations in the case as the resources at its disposal were scarce.
The bench said the issue of black money has to be taken with a degree of seriousness and the state is primarily responsible to make all efforts to bring back into the country such wealth and punish people who have stashed away money in foreign banks.
