Warrants don’t reach Madani

KOLLAM: The Kerala Police have not executed the warrants against Abdul Nasser Madani issued by the Ernakulam Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) Court in the six criminal cases pending before the court.

There were a total of 26 cases against Madani and his associates before the court, as all the cases against the PDP leader in various parts of the State had been transferred to the Ernakulam ACJM court as per the order of the Kerala High Court.

The prosecution had filed application before the court to withdraw all the cases against Madani, as per the decision taken by the Government.

However, the ACJM court refused to grant permission to withdraw six cases.

The petition for withdrawal was filed after filing the charge sheets. According to senior advocate and president of Indian Lawyers Solidarity C.Joseph, who had obtained the documents related to the cases against Madani from the court, CP 5/2003, CC84/03, CC147/03, CC174/03, CC426/03 and CC 427/03 are the cases still pending before the court. In all these cases, bails have been cancelled and warrants issued.

CP (Committed Proceedings) 5/2003 is a case to be committed to the sessions court because of the serious nature of the offences, while all others are calendar cases for which trials have to be conducted in the CJM court. The case has not been committed yet to the sessions court because of the laxity on the part of the prosecution.
