New Delhi, 3 Nov : A group of anti-corruption activists led by Subramanian Swamy will file a complaint with CBI seeking registration of FIR against unnamed persons with regard to black money stashed away in tax havens.
Addressing media here on Thursday, Swami, who heads an Action Committee Against Corruption in India (ACACI), said they will approach court, if CBI does not register the FIR.
“As per the present rules, the CBI has power to register FIR against unnamed persons having accounts in foreign banks. We will file complaint to CBI on October 28 and if they were not acting, we would approach court, like we did in 2G spectrum cases,” said Swamy.
“We will also give data of certain accounts and plead to court to issue Letters of Rogatory to seek information from tax havens. The action committee also demanded an Ordinance to be issued to nationalise all foreign accounts held by Indian citizens in tax havens,” he added.
The meeting was attended by anti-corruption crusaders like former CBI Joint Director BR Lall and S Kalyanaraman. The Committee also urged the Government to ban the Participatory Notes and probe on its original ownership, as suggested by the Tarapore Committee.
“Participatory Notes, routing hawla transactions is a major contributory cause of galloping inflation affecting the common man and further impoverishing people. The UPA Government was forced to keep silence due to the pressure of certain people, even after then NSA MK Narayanan warned against the terror link in stock exchange manipulation through this mechanism,” said Swamy, expressing full solidarity with the movements of Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev against corruption.
