I would like to know whether there is any country anywhere in the world that allows a criminal to continue his crimes when a criminal case is pending against that person. Mind it, a corporate body is treated as an entity in the eye of the law.
That is exactly what is happening in India with the exception of GoldQuest International Ltd, which closed its operations after several criminal cases were filed against it.
A number of criminal cases were pending against Amway India, Herbalife and other corporate bodies which are running pyramid schemes. Still, these companies have been running their fraudulent schemes with impunity. Is there anything wrong with the democratic system running in India? No. That is not the case. Because of the democratic system only, we are able to express our opinions freely.
It is the Goebbels' propaganda undertaken by these crooks that is working overtime. The other day I met a police officer who much to my surprise told me that the criminal cases against Amway India were irrelevant as the Supreme Court has given it a stay order in its favour. When I showed him the Supreme Court judgement only he was convinced.
The writ of Mandamus petition filed by the Corporate Frauds Watch in the Andhra Pradesh High Court is still pending. Still, the police could file fresh criminal cases against these companies as these schemes attracted the provisions of the Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978. However, police are reluctant to file fresh cases pointing out that there are no victims coming forward to file criminal cases. But the Act stipulates that the police could file criminal cases suo motu on mere suspicion that some money circulation scheme is being run by any person or company. The police say that their hands are busy with routine criminal cases and security arrangements for the politicians and other work.
