During all his bail hearings Chidambaram has been present in the court in his senior advocate gown; He managed to secure protection against arrest seven times from Judge OP Saini.

J Gopikrishnan, a senior journalist from The Pioneer, has requested the suspension of the Senior Designations of P Chidambaram and his wife Nalini Chidambaram in his letter to Chief Justice of India.

In the Saradha Chit fund case even though the charge sheet has been filed before a trial Court in Kolkata, Nalini Chidambaram managed to secure interim protection from Madras High Court.

He has appealed to the CJI Ranjan Gogoi, till the trails against P Chidambaram and Nalini are concluded, they should be suspended from there senior advocate designation.

They are accused in various cases related to corruption, black money and money laundering. These matters are being tracked by agencies like the Income Tax Department, the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

In his two-page letter, Gopikrishnan justifies his request with various instances.

It is a “clear misuse of holding Senior Advocate Designation” by an accused under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The Congress leader Chidambaram has previously appeared in cases before trial courts in his Senior Advocate attire When Senior Advocates Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Manu Singhvi were contending for his Bail.

P Chidambaram “appears to get undue advantages from 2G Court”.  The CBI and ED were directed by the Supreme Court to conclude a probe into the Aircel-Maxis case within six months. Just a few days after, the trial court Judge OP Saini granted him interim protection from any arrest. 

During all his bail hearings Chidambaram has been present in the court in his senior advocate gown; He managed to secure protection against arrest seven times from Judge OP Saini.  Also, in the INX Bribery case, the Delhi High Court granted him interim protecting.

“How can Investigating agencies and Judges work freely when an accused is a Senior Advocate title holding person?”  –  Gopikrishnan implied in his letter [1].

In the Saradha Chit fund case even though the charge sheet has been filed before a trial Court in Kolkata, Nalini Chidambaram managed to secure interim protection from Madras High Court.

“She obtained interim protection of arrest from Madras High Court’s Bench headed by Justice GK Ilanthiraiyan who ordered Nalini Chidambaram to appear before a local Chennai Court to take bail. Madras High Court, which is widely known as the domain of Chidambaram family passed this Order at a special sitting on a second Saturday. With the order from High Court, same day by late evening, Nalini Chidambaram was granted Interim Protection for fifteen days by a Chennai Egmore Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court by accepting Rs 10000 as sureties. Respected Chief Justice of India, such kind of benevolence from Courts expected for a common citizen? (sic)” [2]

Gopikrishnan has also requested CJI to consider the implementation of an Annual Affidavit to be filed by all Senior Advocates disclosing cases against them [3].

  1. Any Senior Advocate is strictly following, the prescribed regulations ? I have heard of only a few. Presently, very few would be following. It is very impracticable to strictly follow the benchmark regulations.

  2. Supreme Court turned out to be an asshole. Time to dismantle this institution permanently. Demolish & build a new institutions with fresh bricks.

  3. Indian judiciary is the most unaccountable institution in the world today.
    When the judges self-select themselves leaving elbow room open for nepotistic and broad day light arbitrary decisions, let us not expect anything good from them? Collegium system has lost all credibility now and the proposed National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) should be tried. Bar Council is selective in its approach.
    Let us not expect much from the NDA government. SG,RG,PC et al planted too many agents in the government just before 2014 elections and BJP itself may rescue them also.

    • 😀😀Just,can anybody imagine the SHAMELESS was of the BENCH SITTERS JudgeS,Even though 1 of them is the Thief justice of SC,1 of the Just Retired Bench sitter,is SHAMELESSly giving the interview,in wich he says its a slow process & will take time,giving a clear indication of their Leftist Mindset,They were in a tearing hurry after the Judjement of The Untimely Death of The Judge of a Mumbai High Court,Clearing of any kind of Murder, Setting an Unprecedented EPIDEMIC CONSTIPATION IN LEFTIST “Presstitutes/Sickularists/ Brain in Ass INTELLECTUALS”

  4. I doubt that the court will act. Remember the move to bar MPs practicing in courts. It was a sound move but the Supreme Court did not favour it. No convincing reasons were given. So also the move for bar false declarations in affidavits about domicile and residence by candidates seeking election to Rajya Sabha. On one hand courts emphasise the sanctity of affidavits in general but on the other hand the Supreme Court has turned a blind to these patently lying affidavits.

  5. I wonder whether the Bar Council of India maintains a ‘Code of Conduct & Ethics’!!!

    How come charge-sheeted persons continue in their positions? Why is it that an outsider Journalist finds it necessary to infuse ethics in the Legal Profession

    Bar Council of India is shouting from the roof-top on trivial issues like superceding. How is it that criminals who looted the nation dry continue as Senior Counsels!!!

  6. It is now evident from the above cases that the corrupt politicians and the rich get undue advantages from the Indian judiciary, and the poor get a raw deal.
    Should’t the CJI put a stop this immediately. Also pass a stricture for the future that no leniency should be shown for cases involving corruption, terrorism, money laundering, bribes, misuse of position etc.
    If this corrupt system is allowed to proceed further, India will once again bear the burnt and will remain a country of contradictions with huge divide between rich and poor. With the corrupt politicians from UPA and allied parties playing with the law and happily enjoying their life outside jail under full protection of INDIAN LAW, who is to blame??, the CBI, ED, Judiciary or NDA.

  7. Let the current Acting Finance Minister or the PM of India should direct the Ministry, ED and CBI to give appropriate instructions, circulars to the Courts investigating to implicate/charge sheet all former Finance Ministry Secretaries who approved the FIPB Clearance along with the main culprit, the former Finance Minister, P.C. who totally bypassed the SOPs time and again. Let the past PM, Mr. Manmhohan Singh appear before the Court and extricate himself by stating it was done without his knowledge.

  8. Let Kapil Sibal and Abhisehk Manusinghvi come, argue to defend P.Chidambaram and Nalini Chidambaram. The worst scenario is thugs like Karti C. show V – Victory Sign from Tihar and Arthur Road Jails, getting repeated bails to move out, go abroad and erase all trails and set new benami transfers and then roam all over the world walk likea happy big-fat Cub. while P. Chidambaram continues to roar like an angry and hungry Lion in the media posing as though he is ready tpo become the PM if stupid India would anoint him. Neither Rahul nor Sonia came once to his rescue by only sent their Chamchas like Kapil S. Abishek M. . Shame India. In USA/UK of for that matter in Malaysia/Singapore, these type of high profile national level corruption cases – allegations/frauds will be investigated on a priority basis by the apex courts. India is run by a totally corrupt system top to bottom and Indians are simply lethargic, lazy, weak, stupid, dumb, only good at cheating its own people.

  9. There is no justice in India. It is delayed and finally denied justice. Hardly any conviction. White collar crime fellows wear white dhoti, white shirt and all deeds are dark and black. They escape conviction for a long time. It is high time responsible judiciary, accountable judiciary and bar association suspends these accused WHO (wife and husband Offenders). I urge respected CJI to act and take needed action.

  10. Unexpectedly God has sent Arun jaitley away to USA…

    A blessing in disguise to Shri NARENDRA Modi … Now things wud perhaps move in positive direction… Without any compromise…… All corrupt n guilty would be arrested and punished….. Jai bharat maa ki
