KOCHI: The state government has come to the fore with a response to former chief minister Oommen Chandy questioning the appointment of Justice Sivarajan Commission who investigated the Solar fraud case.

The government has clarified in its affidavit that the appointment of the Solar Commision was valid, and that the report submitted by the Commission was not only based on the allegations in the letter submitted by Saritha S Nair, who is an accused in the case.

“There are evidences and documents against Oommen Chandy in the case. There are also substantiating evidences to prove that there were close connection between Saritha and the other accused in the case. Also their phone records prove the connection between these people,”the government said in its affidavit.

“The report was made based on the evidences provided by the witnesses in front of the Commission. It is natural for the Commission to make the evidences that it receives a part of the report.”

The government also rejected Oommen Chandy’s argument that there was no opinion formation at first glance at government-level following the allegations. The government clarified that the issue was discussed in the cabinet meeting, and that the appointment of the Commission will not become invalid just because there is no minutes of the cabinet meeting.

The Commission was appointed when Oommen Chandy was the Chief Minister. Oommen Chandy had previously alleged that the Commission created matters to be considered on its own.

Kapil Sibal, who appeared for Oommen Chandy, had also argued that criminal act should be followed in a case involving criminal offences, and appointing a Commission to do this was not right.

Sibal had also argued that the government did not check whether the letter written by an accused in the case protects public’s interest.
