1996 FERA case: Dinakaran appears before court, next hearing on May 10

ANI  |  Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India] 

Complying with the order to appear in the next hearing, All Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) general secretary T.T.V. Dinakaran today appeared before the Economic Offences in the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) case registered against him.

Next hearing in the matter has been scheduled for May 10.

The Egmore Magistrate headed by Judge Malarmathi had on April 13 ordered Dinakaran to appear for questions in connection with the same case on April 18 and 19.

Earlier in the week, the Madras High Court refused to defer Dinakaran's trial in a money laundering-cum-foreign exchange violation case till April 12.

Justice R. Mahadevan said that the court was neither staying nor deferring the trial against Dinakaran in the Economic Offences Court-II.

Justice Mahadevan agreed with the (ED) counsel's submission that in the absence of an interim stay, the lower court was free to go ahead with Dinakaran's trial on April 10.

The judge denied reprieve to Dinakaran while hearing his petition against the court's order which had refused to defer his trial by six weeks.
