Why is CBI not appealing in the corruption case against Sonia Gandhi’s aide Vincent George?

CBI's decision to not appeal the decision of a High Court judge in the DA case against Vincent George, the Private Secretary of Sonia Gandhi is baffling

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is always in the habit of making moves that can confuse even the most accomplished chess player. One such instance is the delay in filing appeal against Delhi High Court’s questionable quashing of the case registered under Prevention of Corruption Act and disproportionate assets case against Sonia Gandhi’s private secretary Vincent George and family members. The CBI had raided Vincent George and found sufficient documents to prove abuse of power, corruption and amassing of wealth.

Even a Letters Rogatory was sent to USA to track down his relative, who was a benami.

This case is an instance of more-going-on-than-meets-the-eye between the BJP and Congress. Vincent George was raided and a case registered by CBI in 2001 during Atal Bihari Vajpayees’ tenure as Prime Minister. After this incident things went quiet. The registration of case under Prevention of Corruption Act and subsequent Disproportionate Assets case against Sonia Gandhi’s gatekeeper might have been the reason for the tardiness in the movement of the case. After the case, Congress managers used to float a false theory that Sonia had sidelined or avoided Vincent George. But that was not the case.

In the 2001 registered case, the CBI had listed Vincent George’s properties, shops and houses across the country including in Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Kerala and even a farm land in the outskirts of Delhi. Rs.1.5 crore was unearthed from bank accounts. Even a Letters Rogatory was sent to USA to track down his relative, who was a benami.

After deep slumber, the CBI in June 2013 during UPA’s fag end, filed a closure report on this case. But to the shock of CBI and Lutyens’ Delhi, the trial court Judge rejected the closure report and ordered a trial. In his detailed Order, the trial court Judge slammed CBI and said that the trail must go on, pointing out the evidence provided by the CBI. The Trial Court summoned Vincent George on August 20, 2013.

It is high time that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should find out the moles in his Government who protect the corrupt leaders from Congress and act quickly.

But within days, Vincent George approached Delhi High Court’s Single Bench of Justice V P Vaish who gave him a temporary stay on trial court proceedings on August 26, 2013. Incidentally this Judge had first stayed the summons issued to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case too, which was later rejected by other Judges and even the Supreme Court. Justice Vaish finally quashed the trial court’s proceedings on December 23, 2014. Justice Ved Prakash Vaish was transferred out of Delhi in May 2016 to Meghalaya High Court.

The thing to note here is that this happened when Narendra Modi’s watch. What was the CBI’s Advocate doing when Vincent George was arguing against the trial court order? For the past 30 months CBI has not yet appealed against the doubtful and questionable order of Single Bench of Justice Ved Prakash Vaish. Why is the CBI not appealing in the higher forums against this Single Bench’s doubtful decision? The bigger question is who is advising CBI not to appeal against the Order to continue the trial against Sonia Gandhi’s private secretary Vincent George, who was caught with his hand in the cookie jar for corruption and amassment of disproportionate assets? It is high time that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should find out the moles in his Government who protect the corrupt leaders from Congress and act quickly. Three years have passed and people have only so much patience.

  1. A lot of people here are implying that someone is doing this without Modi’s knowledge. But so many instances like these cannot happen without Modi’s explicit approval.

  2. Everyone knows who that powerful mole of Sonia is, in Vajpayee govt. and now in Modi’s Government !! The problem is no one knows why Modi is scared of this guy ? Modi is even giving promotions to him !!!! I see the frustration of large number of Modi fans that this guy is still so powerful in Modi government eventhough he is the darling of Modi bashing media houses/ Journos!!!!!

  3. Yes it’s shocking why CBI not appealing. Three years since Modi govt in place, as assured, not single UPA scam/ scam masters was booked. @g, Coal gate name as case all moving in “snail’s pace”. Maran bros acquited in Air cell.Maxis case. Govt should prove it will not let the corrupts “scott free”

  4. It is common knowledge that Modi ji is sorrounded by corrupt elements in the BJP. Main such mole is AJ, who has close links with NCP patriarch & by extension, Sonia’s gang. Even many top bureaucrats, including some in PMO are the moles of corrupt political and corporate lobbies.Home and defence ministries r also manipulated by the moles of opposition and even ISI with the result all progressive attempts by Modi ji were sabotaged successfully as was the case with demonetisation and brought the desired results. Unless Modi ji wakes up to these black sheep’s around him, people are bound to be disappointed with his performance. Will he act at least now?

  5. NaMo must sacrifice a few crooks in the BJP who are being used as shield by the UPA to save themselves . During their rule the UPA tried its best to decimate NaMo but could not do so as they had nothing against him but they must have collected “material” on some corrupts in the NDA including Rajnath and his son Pankaj Singh,Arun Jaitely and some Advani loyalists and to save them NaMo might be hesitating in taking decisive actions likes of mayawati,Mulayam,the entire Congress and NCP gang and many more. AB Vajpayee committed the same mistake and the entire NDA and its support base suffered for 10 long years . Killer instinct is what NaMo needs for the good of this nation .

  6. Modi Ji, When you became PM you assured us that the law will take its own course and every corrupt person will be punished. But it seems the course of law is being stalled. We have voted you with great hope with a trust that the guilty will be punished. When we find that the people with connections not getting punished we feel betrayed. MODIJI DON’T LET US DOWN.

  7. The report, if genuine, is shocking. Definitely, Mr.AJ is the main mole who is protecting INC’s corrupt leaders. Does PM knows about this? Or, this is being done with his knowledge? If his knowing is there, then PM will loose the confidence of the general public slowly and steadily.

  8. This is not an isolated case.Some powerful moles in the Finance ministry protect corrupt people,like NDTV,Sonia,PC etc. even in during Modi’s time. The trojan war has to be kicked out of the ministry. I fail to understand what is preventing Modi in whom we have lot of trust to take action and bring each and every case logical end quickly.

  9. Shocking. Someone in CBI under the instructions of Jaitley must have hushed up Vincent George’s case file. Modi should act and kick out such moles in the party.
