Statement of Clarification: Subpoena to Mr Jasbir Singh Chahl
SUARAM wishes to clarify our comments made at the #Ops Scorpene fundraiser on 15 June 2012, and the subsequent press reports quoting a statement of Mr Jasbir Singh Chahl, denying his involvement in the Scorpene scandal and that he has not received a subpoena from any jurisdiction.
We wish to clarify and reiterate that SUARAM’s lawyers leading the case in France, Mr William Bourdon and Joseph Breham, have confirmed that Mr Jasbir Singh Chahl is a witness to the case and has been subpoenaed by the court. The service of the subpoena is underway and may take some days. We do not have further information on the exact time frame of this process.
We are ready to provide immediate updates as the case develops.
