CPI(M) Slams Bofors Case Withdrawal


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on September 30.

THE decision of the central government to withdraw the case against Ottavio Quattrocchi was facing prosecution in the Bofors bribery case comes in the wake of prolonged efforts to scuttle the case.

At every stage, successive governments headed by the Congress have resorted to various devices to derail the case and protect Quattrocchi. The CBI was prevented from pursuing the case seriously.

With this latest act the cover-up of the Bofors bribery case is now complete.
