“Put up for orders on February 4,” Special CBI judge O P Saini said after Swamy concluded his arguments in support of his allegations against Chidambaram.
During the arguments, Swamy said the evidence he had brought on court's record prima facie show that Chidambaram is equally culpable as former Telecom Minister A Raja, who is facing trial in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.
"A Raja and P Chidambaram had committed the offence together. Prima facie Chidambaram had conspired and colluded with Raja to commit offence of criminal misconduct," he said.
He told the court that the evidence which he had bought before it was sufficient to show that Chidambaram, as the then Finance minister, had prima facie committed offences under Prevention of Corruption Act and other criminal laws.
"It is clear that at this stage all I need to do is to show that evidence brought on record is sufficient to show that Chidambaram, at present not an accused in the case, has prima facie committed offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act and other criminal laws," Swamy contended.
Referring to the court's order of October 22 on framing of charges in the case, Swamy said that offloading of shares by Swan Telecom and Unitech Wireless to foreign-based Etisalat and Telenor respectively was only a ‘trick’.
