Trial process in another Jaya corruption case begins
The trial process in another corruption case against former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalitha commenced today with the special judge ordering issuance of summons to 10 witnesses to appear before the court on December 28.
Special Judge-I S Sambandham ordered issuance of summons to the witnesses in the case relating to the alleged amassment of wealth to the tune of Rs 666.5 million by Jayalalitha, disproportionate to her known sources of income, during her tenure as chief minister.
Besides Jayalalitha, the other accused in the case are her close friend Sasikala Natarajan, her erstwhile foster son V N Sudhakaran and Sasikala's relative Elavarasi.
This is the third case in which trial would begin on the next hearing. The judge, however, allowed petitions filed by the accused seeking to dispense with their appearances before the court for the day.
Earlier, Special Judge-II V Radhakrishnan had ordered issuance of summons to witnesses to appear before the court in the cases relating to the construction of the seven-storey 'Pleasant Stay' hotel in Kodaikanal, flouting norms and the Rs 101.6 million colour television purchase scam.
