Supreme Court grants interim bail to Jayalalithaa in disproportionate assets case.

Tamil Nadu: Former Tamil Nadu chief minister gets bail
The Supreme Court on Friday granted interim bail to former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa in a disproportionate assets case. The bail application, based on Jayalalithaa’s poor health, has been extended up to December 18. Last month the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam chief was convicted by a local court in Bangalore to four years in jail and fined Rs 100 crore for amassing wealth through corrupt means. The apex court judgement arrived on the 43rd anniversary of AIADMK’s founding.

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
