Apex court directs Jayalalithaa to appear in Bangalore court

Monday September 12, 2011 05:15:39 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday directed Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa to appear before a Bangalore court to record her statement in a disproportionate assets case.

She will appear before the court Oct 20. Jayalalithaa faces charges for accumulating wealth disproportionate to known sources of income when she was the chief minister from 1991 to 1996.

The case was transferred from Chennai to Bangalore.

Jayalalithaa had moved the Supreme Court saying that she should be exempted from appearing before the trial court. She cited her new status as chief minister and security considerations as grounds for exemption from personal appearance.

At one stage, Jayalalithaa had even offered to get her statement recorded through video-conferencing.

The trial court has been asked to ensure proper security environment when she appears before the judge. An apex court bench of Justice Dalveer Bhandari and Justice Deepak Verma also directed the Karnataka government to ensure adequate security.
