Swamy to file complaint with CBI


Share post:


KOLKATA: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy today said Action Committee Against Corruption in India (ACACI), a 15-member committee headed by him, would lodge a complaint in the next two weeks with the CBI seeking an FIR to be registered against unnamed persons possessing illegal bank accounts abroad.

“If the CBI declines to register the FIR, then the ACACI will move the court,” Swamy told reporters here.

“If the CBI registers the FIRs, the ACACI would then move the court for issuing letters rogatory,” he said. The ACACI was formed with special focus on illegal money flow in and out of the country.

On Anna Hazare’s anti-graft movement, Swamy said, “I find the anti-corruption agitation launched by Anna Hazare and Ramdev to be limited in some way. Ramdev is making the public aware about corruption while Hazare is fighting for the Jan Lokpall Bill,” he said.

Swamy, who was in the city to attend a group discussion at the National University of Juridical Sciences, claimed in his fight against corruption, he had shown how action could be taken against corrupt people within the existing legal system and institutions. (PTI)
