HC to pass orders on Jayalalithaa’s petition on May 27

Chennai (PTI): The Madras High Court will pass orders on May 27 on a petition from AIADMK General Secretary Jayalalithaa seeking to stay all further proceedings against her in the 1993-94 wealth tax case, pending before the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Egmore.
Justice M Venugopal, before whom the petition came up, also reserved orders for May 27 on the admissibility of a criminal revision petition filed by the former Chief Minister seeking to set aside an order dated February 25, 2008 of ACMM dismissing her petition to discharge her from the case.
Jayalalithaa, in her petition, said the trial court had not taken note of the fact that mere non-filing of returns as claimed by the Income Tax department alone could not entail any prosecution. It was necessary that criminal intent be established on the part of petitioner by the department, which it failed to do, she submitted.
She alleged that the trial court had not properly applied the judgements.
