India’s Business and Political Elite continue to Mock Indian Laws;Raju gets Bail

2 Comment

India’s Business and Political Elite continue to mock the Indian Legal System through loopholes and expensive lawyers.I had written earlier in a post of how Satyam Scandal Kingpin Ramalinga Raju enjoyed luxurious facilities at hospitals despite his jail term.He had managed to avoid questioning by the authorities through excuses of bad health and now he has managed to get bail for the Biggest Corporate Scandal to hit India.This reduces the trust of the Indian citizens on  the State and tarnishes the reputation of the country as a vibrant democracy.A number of scandals have hit the Indian legal system with a powerful criminal convicted of murder recently partying in the capital.He had got time away from jail on the recommendation of the state government.Politically connected powerful criminals manage to enjoy jail time through lenient jail authorities who let them out frequently on flimsy conditions.Even in Jail,they enjoy a privileged existence denied to common criminals.Their army of expensive lawyers keeps finding loopholes to get off their rich clients as India’s Justice System remains mired under millions of long due cases.

It is a matter of concern that everyone of the accused in this scandal has managed to get bail as India’s premier agency CBI has not been able to build a watertight case till now.This is despite Raju accepting his role as the master rogue in the siphoning of millions of dollars from India’s 4th largest IT company at that time.Despite the media spotlight on this case,blatant corruption has won again.

Satyam scam: Ramalinga Raju gets bail- Zee

Andhra Pradesh High Court on Wednesday granted bail to Ramalinga Raju, the prime accused in multi-crore Satyam Computers accounting scam.Raju, who is undergoing treatment for Hepatitis C at the government-run Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) here, had filed the bail petition in July.

With this, all the ten accused in the scam that rocked the country in Jaanuary 2009 are now out on bail.Raju shocked corporate India last year by admitting to Rs 7,800 crore accounting fraud in the IT major.

Manu Sharma partying hard, yet CM defends parole – TOI

The heinous murder of Jessica Lall – and the blatant cover-up attempt that followed – shook the conscience of the nation and led to Manu Sharma being sentenced to life imprisonment. But last weekend, it seemed as if nothing had changed. Sharma was seen visiting fancy Delhi nightclubs with friends.

All this while he’s on parole, ostensibly tending to his `ailing’ mother, Shakti Rani Sharma – who was well enough on Saturday to address a press conference in Chandigarh about a women’s cricket tournament.

Not surprisingly, news of Manu’s partying while on parole has resulted in a furore. There are widespread allegations that political connections – Manu is the son of Venod Sharma, a prominent Haryana MLA and Congress member – are being used to keep him out of jail. There are now demands that his parole be cancelled.
