2G: Balwa seeks guidelines on trial monitoring

Posted on Dec 11, 09:16AM | IANS

Shahid Balwa, Swan Telecom promoter and an accused in the 2G spectrum case, moved the Supreme Court Monday seeking the framing of guidelines to be followed by constitution courts in relation to monitoring criminal investigations.

Swan Telecom is now known as Etisalat DB Telecom Pvt. Ltd.

Balwa's plea was mentioned before the apex court bench of Chief Justice Altamas Kabir, Justice S.S. Nijjar and Justice J. Chelameswar by senior counsel Ram Jethamalani and Rajiv Dhawan.

The court without passing any order said that it would look into the file.

Balwa urged the apex court to frame the guidelines while seeking the setting aside of April 11, 2011, and Nov 9, 2012, orders by which the apex court said that any order of the trial court hearing 2G cases could be challenged before it only.
