SC defers hearing in SNC-Lavalin case again

New Delhi: The Supreme court deferred to April 6, the hearing on the appeal filed by the CBI against the discharge of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, former Power Department secretary K. Mohanachandran and former joint secretary A. Francis in the SNC Lavalin corruption scam case.

A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Justice U.U Lalit and also comprising Justices Indira Banerjee and K.M Joseph, adjourned the matter to April 6.

The top court expressed its serious unhappiness and dissatisfaction with the CBI, as to why it was seeking adjournment every time the matter is taken up for hearing.

Earlier, the top court had cautioned that the CBI has to argue rigorously as it is a case where Vijayan had been discharged with concurrent judgements of both lower court and the Kerala High Court when the matter had taken up first by the two-judge bench of the apex court. Asianet Online
