Rafale Judgment Based On Non Existent Facts, Needs To Be Recalled: Indira Jaising

Jaising added, “This is not about grammar, it is about a void judgement regardless of who misled whom."

Criticising the Supreme Court’s judgment on the Rafale deal, lawyer and activist Indira Jaising said the judgment needed to be recalled, on Friday, December 14.

Taking to Twitter, Jaising said, “The Judgment of the Supreme Court in Rafale deal is null and void. It must be recalled. It is based on the reasoning that CAG submitted the report which was examined by PAC. Since no such report exists, the reasoning goes, it is no judgment in the eyes of law.”

In its December 14 verdict, the three-bench panel of the SC, led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi dismissed petitions for a judicial probe in the Rafale deal on the grounds of it not having any jurisdiction in the case. The SC also pointed out in paragraph 25 of its verdict that the pricing details of the Rafale deal were submitted to the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), which were, then, examined by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) when no such details had been furnished to the CAG.

Following the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government filing an affidavit in the SC to make a factual correction in the said para invoking the CAG and PAC, Jaising emphasised her initial point and added, “This is not about grammar, it is about a void judgment regardless of who misled whom, it is based on non-existent facts. It has to be recalled.”
