DMK leader Kanimozhi has moved the Delhi High Court seeking the quashing of charges against her in connection with her alleged involvement in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.
In her petition Kanimozhi has claimed that there was no evidence to support any of the charges framed against her in the case.
Kanimozhi said she was not connected with the granting of licenses or spectrum allocation, adding that she had no executive functions at Kalaignar TV as she was merely a shareholder in the transaction.
She has also told the court that the controversial Kalaignar – Cineyug transaction which saw the transfer of Rs 200 crore to Kalaignar TV by Swan telecom’s Shahid Balwa was a genuine transaction.
Kanimozhi spent 193 days in Tihar jail after she was arrested in connection with the Kalaignar tv transaction and the 2G case.
The “common” shareholder argument has been made by Kanimozhi before. In August 2011 her lawyer told a special CBI judge that Kanimozhi did not even know that her company was taking a Rs 200 crore loan at a 10 percent interest rate. Her lawyer added that holding shares did not mean she participated in the day-to-day affairs of the company,
The petition is expected to be taken up for hearing sometime next week.
