CBI to give 2G case file to Swamy in 2 days

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday told a Delhi court that it would provide in two days a copy of a file relating to 2G spectrum allocation to Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy who alleged the document would prove the "complicity" of the then finance minister P Chidambaram in the scam.

CBI prosecutor A K Singh told Special CBI Judge O P Saini that the agency will give the copy of the file to Swamy by Thursday. The Janata Party chief on Tuesday appeared before the court to allege that despite a judicial order on the issue the probe agency has not given him the documents so far.

Swamy, in his application which was filed earlier, had sought the copy of the file, relating to the Unified Access Services Licences policy regarding sale of equity (lock-in period) which was seized by the CBI on October 22, 2009, during its probe.  He is seeking prosecution of Chidambaram in the 2G case.

Swamy said the CBI was not complying with the court order. "A week before, you (judge) had passed an order asking CBI to give the certified copy of the file to me but the CBI has still not handed that to me," he said.

He said neither the agency has submitted the file in the court nor are they providing it to him.

Earlier, Swamy had claimed that the documents, with endorsements and signatures of Chidambaram, proved the complicity of the then finance minister in the scam. The special judge, who earlier allowed Swamy to inspect the judicial records to see the documents, later asked the CBI to give the file to him after it came to light that it was not filed by the agency.

Swamy had said that the file was "very crucial" for establishing the corruption angle in the 2G spectrum scam because according to A Raja "it was P Chidambaram who told him that he can permit Swan Telecom Pvt Ltd and Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Pvt Ltd to sell their licences (shares) to blacklisted companies Etisalat and Telenor respectively."

During the searches, 59 documents were seized by CBI, which included the file relating to the UASL policy regarding sale of equity.
