The High Court of Kerala has quashed an order of the Magistrate Court on Monday, that no action can be taken against businessman Biju Ramesh for producing fake documents in the Court in connection with the Bar Bribery Case.
The Court also issued an order to take further action against Biju Ramesh for producing edited audio clips as evidence in the Court. The HC said that legal action can be taken against Biju Ramesh if he had produced fake evidence.
Earlier, Biju Ramesh had produced the voice recordings, which was recorded during the meeting of bar owners. The CD was produced when Biju Ramesh’s confidential statement was being recorded. Later, the vigilance examined the CD & found it to be edited.
A native of Thiruvananthapuram Sreejith approached the Magistrate Court against Biju Ramesh pointing out he produced fake evidence in the court. This was soon after Biju made some revelations regarding the Bar Bribery Case. However, the court rejected his petition in November last year stating no legal action in this regard is possible.
Along with the fake evidence which Biju had produced, Sreejith approached the high court & a favourable verdict was pronounced. Sreejith filed the plea as per the Indian Penal Code Section 93.
The State Govt had initiated a vigilance probe based on the revelation of Biju Ramesh against opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala earlier.
