Senior advocate R S Cheema, who was appointed special public prosecutor in 2014 by the Supreme Court in the coal block allocation scam cases, on Friday expressed his willingness to be relieved from the money laundering cases arising out of the matter.
Cheema, in his application to the top court, said there is shortage of law officers assisting him in dealing with such money laundering cases.
A bench of justices Deepak Gupta and Surya Kant refused to pass any order on Cheema’s application and said, “You have done a great service to the nation and our view is that you will be provided all required assistance. You make a team, train them and after two-three months, we will see if they can take over.”
It said, “At this stage, we are not willing to accept your request of being relieved from the money laundering cases and all we are saying, we will not pass any orders. We will hear the matter again in the month of December.” Read More
