The debatable point is, whether it is East or West, can a criminal commit the crime again and again when a criminal case is pending against him. That is what is happening in India. A criminal case was filed against Amway India for indulging in illegal money circulation scheme and cheating a large number of people. Still, the criminal company is still doing the same cheating again and again in the same business model which was held illegal by the highest court in the State of Andhra Pradesh.
Who is responsible for this state of affairs - the corrupt bureaucracy or the corrupt police officers or the snail-paced judicial process?
For instance, the Amway India has preferred to file an appeal by way of a writ petition in the Andhra Pradesh High Court when the Principal Secretary (Home) issued Government Order No. 178 dated 15-09-2008 restraining Amway India from advertising its business model in any media. The Principal Secretary submitted a hard-hitting affidavit in the High Court. Then the Amway India developed cold-feet and bribed wherever necessary to bury its own writ petition preventing it from appearing on the Bench.
Later, in 2009, the Corporate Frauds Watch filed a writ of Mandamus in the Andhra Pradesh High Court to direct the police officials to act upon the Government Order No. 178. Amway India could not help when it received the show-cause notice from the High Court of Andhra Pradesh in the same writ of Mandamus. It started its own gameplan to bury the writ preventing it from appearing on the Bench. The number of the writ petition went down to 140 from the earlier 20s or 30s.
Suddenly, the earlier writ petition of 2008 started appearing on the Bench. Apparently, the Amway India's gameplan was to get the Government Order quashed. Not to be outwitted, the Corporate Frauds Watch filed an implead petition in the writ petition of 2008. Then the Bench which is hearing the writ petition, preferred to transfer it to a larger Bench without hearing the version of the Corporate Frauds Watch.
It may look coincidental. But any rational person would not believe in coincidents.
