Three of the six recalled witnesses re-examined in Jaya trial
The witnesses who deposed before the court were:
Shiva, a broker, Jayaraman, a housekeeper in Jayalalithaa`s
residence and Jawahar, who was the Deputy Secretary during her
reign as the Chief Minister.
All the three witnesses, as in the case of earlier
witnesses who have been re-examined, resiled from their
statements made during the cross-examination and maintained
that the statements made by them during the chief examination
(first examination) were correct.
Out of the remaining witnesses, two -- Amanullah
Marakayar and Kadresan -- were dispensed with. Defence counsel
Navaneetha Krishnan objected to the other witness Swarnam
being re-examined as his name was not in the recalled list.
After the re-examination of witnesses, Special Judge B
M Mallikarjunaiah directed the defence counsel to point out
the "defects and mistakes in the translated evidences one last
time" and posted the trial to January 27.
Earlier Special Public Prosecutor B V Acharya filed
two memo -- one for dispensing with the two witnesses and
another for closing the prosecution.
The case against Jayalalithaa which was heard by a
Chennai court had been transfered to Bangalore by the Supreme
