"We are interested in money coming back and not on disclosure of names," a bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu said when arguments were advanced that the Government should disclose the names of those who have admitted having illegal accounts in foreign banks.
However, the Bench, also comprising Justices M B Lokur and A K Sikri, accepted the plea of noted jurist Ram Jethmalani, one of the petitioners in the matter, that the apex court-appointed Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by its Chairman Justice M B Shah and Vice Chairman Justice Arijit Pasayat, consider the various suggestions put forth to bring back illegal black money stashed abroad.
"We permit all parties including the intervenors to bring to the notice of the SIT their suggestions within two weeks from today and if such suggestions are given in time, we only request the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the SIT to consider the same in accordance with law and send a copy of the report to that aspect to this court in a sealed cover," it said.
The bench clarified that it was not saying anything on the suggestions put forward by Jethmalani in his fresh application and it was for the SIT to consider those.
