Rafale case: SC dismisses review petitions by Prashant Bhushan, Arun Shourie and Yashwant Sinha, says ‘they lack merit’

While this judgement has cast a shadow on the integrity of Rahul Gandhi who furthered this lie repeatedly, it has also indicted The Hindu that published cropped documents in order to further this lie. 

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the review petitions against the December 14th judgement of the SC which declined to order a probe into the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets by the Modi government from Dassault Aviation. The review petitions were filed by Advocate Prashant Bhushan, Arun Shourie and Yashwant Sinha.

The Supreme Court had reserved its verdict in May 2019 on the review petitions filed against its December 2018 order that refused to order a probe in the Rafale deal.

The review petitions filed by advocate Prashant Bhushan and former Union Ministers Yashwant Sinha and Arun Shourie placed reliance on documents leaked by The Hindu and its editor N Ram in order to argue that the Modi Government had suppressed information from the Court regarding the deal to procure 36 Rafale jets. The Court also heard an application for initiating perjury proceedings against officials who had allegedly misled the Court.

The Supreme Court has held that the plea on charges of perjury against the officials is also not fair.

While this judgement has cast a shadow on the integrity of Rahul Gandhi who furthered this lie repeatedly, it has also indicted The Hindu that published cropped documents in order to further this lie.
