Supreme Court: The Supreme Court will today hear the petition of Karti Chidambaram challenging the decision of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). This hearing will be held in the open court. On Wednesday, the court had accepted the application seeking permission for open court hearing and oral arguments in this case and directed the matter to be heard in open court on Thursday.

A bench of Justice NV Ramana, Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice CT Ravikumar said on Wednesday that the application for oral hearing is allowed. The matter is listed on August 25, 2022. The bench said this while considering Karti’s review petition in the court. Karti had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking reconsideration of the July 27 decision upholding the powers of the ED.

Supreme Court on PMLA

Earlier, the Supreme Court had given a big decision on PMLA. In a setback to the people trapped in the case registered by the Enforcement Directorate, the court had dismissed the petitions challenging the provisions of the PMLA Act. The court had said that the amendments made in the law in the year 2018 are correct. Along with this, the Supreme Court had upheld all the powers of the ED.

What is said in the petition

The provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) have been challenged in these petitions. These challenged the wide range of powers available to the ED for search, arrest, seizure, investigation and attachment of proceeds of offenses under the PMLA. It has been said that these provisions violate fundamental rights. The court’s decision to hear in the open court on the review petition of Karti Chidambaram has deep meaning.
