2G trial: Anil, Tina Ambani to appear as witnesses

2G trial: Anil, Tina Ambani to appear as witnesses
A special court hearing the 2G scam case has directed Reliance ADAG chairman Anil Ambani and his wife Tina Ambani to appear as prosecution witnesses to help throw light on alleged investment of over Rs 990 crores by his group companies in Swan Telecom.

The court said the plea of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to summon Anil Ambani, Tina Ambani and 11 others as prosecution witness was ‘essential for arriving at a just decision in the case’.

Noting that Anil Ambani and Tina Ambani were holding responsible positions in Reliance ADA Group and the shell companies and their testimonies cannot said to be totally unnecessary or unconnected with the case, Special CBI judge O P Saini said that testimony of Anil and Tina is required to prove the facts pertaining to incorporation of shell companies as some of the witnesses examined earlier have not been able to do so.

‘Both these witnesses, that is Anil D Ambani and Tina A Ambani are holding responsible positions in Reliance ADA Group and the shell companies and investments/divestments and applications of Swan Capital (P) Limited/Swan Telecom (P) Limited for UAS Licenses and its transfer to DB Group pertain to realm to which these two witnesses are supposed to be acquainted with. As such, their examination cannot said to be totally unnecessary or unconnected with the case. Rather it may help in reaching the truth and just decision of the case,’ said the court.
