Writ against Amway posted for Aug 18

Andhra Pradesh High Court on 23.07.2009 posted further hearing on the Writ petition against Amway India filed by Corporate Frauds Watch following the plea by the Government Pleader for more time to file answer.
Earlier, surprisingly, the writ petition which is at No.105 at the day's Cause list, came up for hearing very soon. However, the Hon'ble Division Bench posted it giving time to the State Government for filing its answer.
However, it is apt to note here that Amway India did not file answer so far and probably it is tongue-tied to even talk about it. It is like it is caught with the hand in the cookie jar.
Meanwhile, Mr William Pinckney, the managing director of Amway India who failed to turn up for the trial in Nampally Court, Hyderabad, addressed the Indian media persons at Michigan and told them about a draft legislation the Amway India presented to the Indian Government to legalise its direct selling business in India. Though a lot of time elapsed, it seems, no politician in India is inclined to even look at it let alone to enact it.
We need to have a look at what excuses Mr William Pinckney made not to appear in the criminal court.
Wait for more soon.
