@PChidambaram_IN SG- unlike Chidambaram's lawyers, I'm not experienced enough to conclude my arguments in 15 mins. I will take a little more time
#PChidambaram #INXMediaCase
Sibal- what's the point of dragging our experience into this. He should argue on points of bail. We knew they were keeping him so chargesheet could be filed. We had told your lordships. @KapilSibal

SG- There are 15 accused in chargesheet.

#PChidambaram #inxmediascam
Sibal- The issuance of non bailable warrant is what we contest. How do they put out a notice at midnight and give me 2 hrs notice. I replied at 1.10am and still they issued a nbw stating that I'm absconding

INX Media: Hearing in the Supreme Court on P Chidambaram's petition for anticipatory bail in case registered by the Enforcement Directorate begins.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta begins to make the submission for the agency.

Every PMLA offence has two dimensions - predicate offence and laundering. Money laundering is a separate offence independent from the predicate/scheduled offence, Mehta.

We would be dealing with very intelligent people. A stupid man cannot launder money. Money laundering requires layers and layers of concealment, Mehta

Something MASSIVELY odd at the SC registry:

In April, I filed a PIL in the SC seeking a probe into Modi's undeclared assets.

SC registry gave me a list of "defects" on 16 Apr that needed to be cured to list my PIL.

These were simple clerical defects (screenshots). (1/13)
I cleared the defects & re-submitted the petition on 26th April. I'd cleared all defects that were informed to me as well as listed on the SC website for my PIL.

I'd requested an urgent hearing in the case and requested the registry to list the matter as soon as possible (2/13)
I kept checking the SC website after that for 10 days to see if defects been cleared (which usually takes 2 days max).

I called up the SC registry & was told "there are more defects. Pls come here & we'll tell u".

Funnily, nothing was yet updated on the website. (3/13)

1. Delhi High Court denies Mr @PChidambaram_IN anticipatory bail, no summons have been served yet so first things first he isn’t absconding.
2. @PChidambaram_IN isn’t in hiding, he was at the HC then SC earlier today. There is no risk of flight, he has cooperated all along. There is no question of tampering data, which is all recorded, all documents with CBI and ED. #PChidambaram
3.What is the tearing hurry to arrest him overnight when SC will hear the Delhi HC tomorrow? Isn’t legal jurisprudence innocent until guilty and bail over jail? #PChidambaram
