National Herald Case: Enforcement Directorate Sends Notice To Rahul Gandhi & Sonia Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi and MP Rahul Gandhi have been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to appear before it on June 8 in connection with a money laundering case involving the National Herald. At a press conference today, Congress MP Abhishek Manu Singhvi said that Ms Gandhi will appear on the scheduled date if necessary, but that the party will write to the investigation agency to request some accommodations for Rahul Gandhi. Mr Sanghvi further stated that no proof of money laundering or money exchange has been found.

“In 2015, the ED closed the National Herald case. But the govt didn’t like it and it removed the ED officials concerned, brought in new officials and reopened the case. This is to divert attention from inflation and other raging problems,” Singhvi added.

The alleged misuse of assets worth over 2,000 crore in an equity transaction is the subject of the National Herald lawsuit.

The Gandhis were served with the notice a few days ago. In April, the ED interrogated former Union minister Pawan Bansal and senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge in connection with the National Herald money laundering investigation.

In the instance of the acquisition of the Associated Journals Limited (AJL), which ran the Congress mouthpiece, National Herald, by Young Indian Pvt Ltd, accusations of cheating, conspiracy, and criminal breach of trust have been leveled.
