VS petition on Palmolein case rejected

High-courtKochi: The Kerala High Court has rejected the Opposition Leader VS Achuthananthan’s plea to be permitted to be added as a joint petitioner in the Palmolein case. The petition submitted by the fifth accused of the case Jiji Thomson was considered. In his petition Jiji Thomsan claimed that if further investigation is conducted in the Palmolein graft case as ordered by the Thiruvananthapuram Vigilance Court, then it would affect his promotion.

The Court that had considered his petition had ordered a temporary stay on further probe into the case. The court has now ordered the investigation team to complete the further investigation within 6 weeks. Any delay in the case would affect the career of those accused in the case.
