Amway's advocates are a frightened lot

Amway India has not yet filed its answer to the show cause noticed served by the Andhra Pradesh High Court following a writ of Mandamus No. 11381 of 2009 filed by Corporate Frauds Watch.
Here is the ORDER of the Andhra Pradesh High Court.

"Whereas the petitioner above named through his advocate Sri Sk Mastan Vali, presented this writ petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India praying that in the circumstances stated in the Affidavit filed herein the High Court may be pleased to issue the Writ of Mandamus to direct the official respondents to act U/s 7 of the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978 to stop the business transactions as well as seize all its business operations of Amway since the business model and its transactions are perpetuating the criminal offences fall within the mischief of the above Act and in terms of the judgment of this Hon'ble Court in W P No 20470 and 20471 of 2006 dated 19.07.2007.
And whereas the High Court upon perusing the petition and affidavit filed herein and upon hearing the arguments of Sri Sk Mastan Vali, Advocate for the Petitioner and of GP of GAD for the respondent No. 1 and of GP for Home for the respondents 2,3 and 4 directed issue of notice to the Respondent Nos. 2,4 and 27 returnable on 23-7-2009 herein to show cause why this writ petition should not be admitted in the circumstances set out in the petition and the affidavit filed in Writ Petition. And the Court also permitted the learned advocate for the petitioner to take out personal notice to respondent Nos. 2,4 and 27 by Speed Post with acknowledgement due and file proof of service.
You Viz:
1. The Principal Secretary, Government of Andhra Pradesh, Home Department, AP, Secretariat, Hyderabad.
2. The Additional Director General of Police, Crime Investigation Department, Hyderabad.
3. Amway India Enterprises Pvt Ltd No. 6-3-563/26/A, Flat No. 1&2, Somavarapu Heights, Hill Top Colony, Erramanzil, Hyderabad.
are directed to show cause as to why in the circumstances set out in the petition and the affidavit filed therewith this writ petition should not be admitted."
The counsels of the Amway India are tongue-tied and shudder to file answer to the show cause notice. They are afraid that the Hon'ble High Court would take a decision and close down Amway's operations in the country if they file their answer. That is why they are dilly-dallying.

Shyam regarding ur statement to me

"Trivedi, you know something. India is among the top corrupt countries in the world courtesy companies like Amway. These fraudulent companies grease the palms of bureaucrats wherever they feel threatened. That is why no action was initiated against this cheating company. It is not coward but filled with corrupt bureaucrats. There are some honest people who remain mute spectators for obvious reasons. These honest officers are shunted out of if they raise their voice. People like you support corrupt companies like Amway and complain against the government. Shame on you."

now listen shyam with due respect...

its true india is among the most corrupt countries even it ranks 84 having one of the lowest score of 3.4 out of 10.

now i want to u to take a note of these facts.

Amway is also present in one of the corrupt countries like india (having no direct selling legislation) and also in those countries which are least corrupt like Australia, singapore and New Zealand. and also in Denmark (least corrupt Country in the world).

besides this Amway is from US which also score well in bribery index which means The higher the score for the country, the lower the
likelihood of companies from this country to engage in bribery when doing business abroad.

Again this are not my views u can go the website and have a look

And also one thing direct selling is present in all those countries which least corrupt and scores high on the bribery index. (Also having direct selling as legislation)

It is sad to say that it is INDIA, who is not having direct selling legislation.

What u are trying to say that AMWAY is like a thief where the countries like US, UK and other developed countries having far better and flexible law system is fooled them.

Doing organised crime in more than 80 counties. And no one stops it...

U mean all government officals of more than 80 countries are Corrupt !!!

the public are blind folded....

they blindly accepted to prevail this organised crime!!!!!

u are rite it is indeed shame on me that i am trying to explaining u all this. Who don't want to understand the difference between a scam and legitimate and genuine direct selling.

the funniest part is that direct selling works in more than 125 countries and it is $113 billion industry.

and u guys are saying its scam!!!
