Jaya case: HC allows Swamy’s plea partially
Karnataka High Court on Thursday partially accepted BJP leader Subramanian Swamy’s application seeking permission to implead himself in AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa’s appeal against her conviction in the disproportionate assets case.

The court, however, dismissed DMK General Secretary K Anbazhagan’s prayer to intervene as party respondent to assist the Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) in the case. Passing orders on their applications, Justice C R Kumaraswamy of the special bench, denied permission to Swamy to present his arguments in the proceedings in the case, but allowed him to assist SPP Bhavani Singh since he (Swamy) was the original complainant in the case.

The Special Bench has been set up on the direction of the Supreme Court which had said on December 18 last that Jayalalithaa’s plea challenging her conviction in the disproportionate assets case be decided within three months.  Justice Kumaraswamy also ordered that the court will decide on Swamy’s prayer that he be allowed to make written submissions after the completion of the arguments.
