SC dismisses Swamy's review petition against Chidambaram

December 11, 2012 20:46 IST

The Supreme Court has dismissed Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy's petition for review of its verdict clearing Finance Minister P Chidambaram of all charges in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

The apex court said the decision does not "warrant any reconsideration."

"We have perused the averments contained in the review petition and have gone through the record of Special Leave Petition and are satisfied that order dated August 24, 2012, does not suffer from any error apparent which may be warranted its reconsideration.

"The review petition is accordingly dismissed," a bench of justices G S Singhvi and K S Radhakrishnan said.

Swamy had sought review of the August 24 decision by which his plea for Central Bureau of Investigation inquiry against Chidambaram was rejected by the same bench, which had said there was no material to establish that he abused his official position as the then finance minister.

It had also said neither had Chidambaram conspired nor had he colluded with former Telecom Minister A Raja to obtain any pecuniary advantage for himself or any other persons.

Aggrieved by the order, Swamy had filed the review petition, which was dismissed by the same bench on December 4.
