Justice C.R. Kumaraswamy began hearing after refusing the pleas of Ms. Jayalalithaa’s counsel, who sought adjournment for a few days stating that senior advocates from Delhi would be arguing the case.
Earlier, Subramanian Swamy, on whose private complaint the initial probe began in 1996 before the anti-corruption wing took over the case in 1997, personally appeared before the Court and requested the court to allow him to be an intervener.
Asking about its need, the judge told Dr. Swamy to make a plea in writing so that it could be considered as per law.
Meanwhile, an application has been filed on behalf of DMK leader, K.Anbazhagan to allow him as an intervened as the trial court had permitted him to assist the special public prosecutor.
