I CAN’T SHOW MY PASSPORT : SONIA TO US COURT
Demand of us court had been refused by Sonia Gandhi as us court asks copy of her passport in the matter of 1984 anti – sikh riots . taking the favour of indian government and there rules she denied to provide the copy of her passport..
Congress president Sonia Gandhi has declined to provide a copy of her passport to a US court, saying that government of India had denied her permission to do so. However, in a letter filed by her lawyer in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, Ms. Gandhi “voluntarily” relinquished the plea of lack of personal jurisdiction “without prejudice to the plea of want of jurisdiction in relation to the subject matter.”
Ms. Gandhi had filed a motion in the Brooklyn court seeking dismissal of a human rights violation case against her relating to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, asserting she had not been served the summons as she was not in the US between September 2 and September 9 last year. But holding that Ms. Gandhi’s January 10 declaration was insufficient to prove her absence from US, Judge Brian M. Cogan had March 20 asked Ms. Gandhi to “provide a copy of her passport, showing her most recent entry and exit stamps into and out of the United States.”
