`Parallel trial cannot take place outside courts`

Khurshid was reacting to Advani`s comment that if the PMO felt that then Finance Minister had not taken timely measures to prevent 2G scam, the PM should have permitted a probe against him.

New Delhi: Taking exception to BJP leader LK Advani seeking answers on the PMO`s role in the 2G issue, Law
Minister Salman Khurshid on Wednesday said as the case was already
before the courts, a "parallel trial" cannot take place
outside.

"A parallel trial cannot go on outside the courts...
There is a basic thing that I want Mr Advani to know, that
there is a principle of sub juiced that you cannot discuss
what`s happening in the court," he told reporters here.

He said if things which are before the court are
discussed outside, "there is a danger that you will influence
what the courts will do."

Khurshid was reacting to Advani`s comment that if the PMO
felt that then Finance Minister P Chidambaram had not taken
timely measures to prevent 2G scam, the Prime Minister should
have permitted a probe against him.

"It was incumbent upon the Prime Minister to permit
investigation into his (Chidambaram`s) role instead of
expressing confidence in him saying he is innocent."
