Kejriwal fined Rs 10k for failing to respond to Jaitley's defamation suit

Kejriwal fined Rs 10k for failing to respond to Jaitley's defamation suit

Delhi Chief Minister in an affidavit told the court, "With due respect, it is submitted that neither Kejriwal nor the Counsel briefing the senior counsel Jethmalani gave instructions to the senior counsel to use the objectionable words on May 17, 2017".

Besides the civil defamation suit, Jaitley has also filed a separate criminal defamation case in the trial court against the AAP leaders.

Ram Jethmalani has said that he has quit the case because Mr Kejriwal "lied" when he said he had not instructed him to use the word "crook" while cross examining Mr Jaitley.

Jaitley's application also contends that Kejriwal's intention is to delay the conclusion of recording of evidence by posing irrelevant questions, which are created to be insulting and annoying. A 2 crore fee that Mr Kejriwal owes him can be waived, Mr Jethmalani said today, adding, "it is no problem as I work for free for thousands of people".

In April, Ram Jethmalani offered to fight the defamation case against Arvind Kejriwal pro bono.

Earlier, Jethmalani had said that he was ready to fight for free and even support Kejriwal for his livelihood because he was a clean force in comparison to Jaitley.

The judge warned that if there is an "iota" of scandalous question used in future cross-examination, he will transfer the case from the Joint Registrar to a bench of the High Court.

In December 2015, Jaitley filed a civil defamation suit against Kejriwal and AAP leaders Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh, Raghav Chadha and Deepak Bajpayee, claiming that they made "false and defamatory" statements in the case involving the DDCA, thereby harming his reputation.

Kejriwal then filed an affidavit in the Delhi High Court and also wrote to Jethmalani stating that he had not instructed him to use an offensive words.

During the cross-examination of the Union minister on May 15 and May 17 in the Delhi High Court, Jethmalani had used certain words which were objected to by Jaitley, reported NDTV.

In February this year, Delhi government had cleared a payment of Rs 3.5 crore to Jethmalani, including Rs 22 lakh per appearance in court, as his legal fee. "I have promised him not to make it public".

According to Jethmalani, the Chief Minister has also written a letter to him, the contents of which have not been circulated.
