DR. SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY'S 'REMINDER' TO THE PRIME MINISTER


Dr Manmohan Singh,
Prime Minister of India,
South Block, New Delhi.

Dear Prime Minister

You may recall that I had submitted on April 15, 2011, a 225-page petition seeking your permission {viz., Sanction u/s 19 of the Prevention of Corruption Act (1988)} to prosecute Ms. Sonia Gandhi.
.

Ms. Gandhi has been a public servant since 1991, initially by virtue of getting the 10, Janpath, New Delhi, a Government house, allotted to her as her residence for life. Since 2004 she has been the Chairperson of the National Advisory Council with Cabinet rank and which is serviced administratively by the Cabinet Secretariat.
.
According to submissions and documentation in my petition, Ms. Sonia Gandhi is culpable of having committed a criminal offence e.g., u/s 13 of the afore-referred to Act, in the Bofors scam and hence the criminal law has to be set into motion for which I first need your Sanction.
.
According to the CVC direction on grant of Sanction, you have to decide within three months, i.e., July 15, 2011, whether or not to grant me Sanction.
.
I shall be at Harvard University from June 23rd to August 10th. If therefore I am not informed by you upon my return whether or not I have been granted Sanction, I shall be compelled to approach the Courts against your failure to perform your statutory duty under Section 19 of the said Act.
.
I have also established by some credible documentation that Ms. Sonia Gandhi is the legatee of an illegal bank account, and of a Trust, in Switzerland that was earlier in the name of her now deceased husband Mr. Rajiv Gandhi. From this bank account, payments were made to pay the tuition fees and other expenses of her son Mr. Rahul Gandhi when he was in college in USA, briefly at Harvard in 1990-91 before he was compelled by circumstances to quit, then later at Rollins College, a Catholic Christian establishment, near Orlando, Florida.
.
Hence the money trail from this illegal account can be tracked in view of the Amendment to the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement between Switzerland and India, recently passed by Swiss Parliament on June 17, 2011, when read with Restitution of Illicit Assets of Politically Empowered Persons Act (2010) passed earlier by Swiss Parliament.
.
I am prepared to assist your Government to get the necessary documents from the Swiss authorities if you are serious about the matter of bringing back such black money deposited abroad. The procrastination in the Lichtenstein Bank matter however is not inspiring.
.
Yours sincerely,

( SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY )
