Ottavio Quattrocchi

'The Last Nail In The Coffin Of The Judicial Process'

Apr 28, 2009 L.K. Advani

'I hold Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress president Smt. Sonia Gandhi directly responsible for colluding in this conspiracy to bury the truth about Bofors'

'Farewell Gift To The Nation- In-Law'

Apr 28, 2009 Arun Jaitley

The timing of the withdrawal of the the Red Corner notice against Ottavio Quattrocchi is an indication that the leadership of the UPA is so convinced of the loss of its power that, like most despotic regimes, it is obliging its friends in the last da

At Least For Q's Sake...

So why has the government stalled anti-corruption help from Germany? It should accept it at least to avoid another round of possibly unwarranted harassment of Mr Quattrocchi...

How One Man Can Subvert A Nation

The jibe by Quattrocchi's lawyer, that CBI did not argue its case properly, might well be perceived then in an altogether different, sinister light. Updates

Recent indications suggest that the differences over Ottavio Quattrocchi have assumed the dimensions of a rift at the very top, playing havoc with governance.

The Q Déjà Vu

Outlook Web Bureau

It turns out that this time too—a classic repeat of what happened almost a year back—the nation learnt of Bofors payoff-accused Ottavio Quattrocchi's detention when he was already out on bail! The Congress and CBI brazen it out.

Will Truth Be Out At Last?

Rajinder Puri

Mr Ottavio Quattrocchi is in Argentinean custody not because but in spite of the government and the powers that be. The globalization of investigation in the Bofors case could possibly tie the hands of the UPA government.

Fighting Terror

Rajinder Puri

It is no use looking up to America to learn how the war against terror should be fought. Can India summon zero tolerance towards political corruption, on which terrorism feeds? Unless that is done, there can be no real war on terror.

Bury The Congress

Rajinder Puri

It degenerated from a movement to a party, from a party to a dynasty. It has outlived its historical role. It must be consigned to the dustbin of history. India needs a new party, a new political culture and a new freedom struggle.

The Sounds Of Saintly Silence

Rajinder Puri

Congress President Sonia Gandhi has constructive responsibility for all actions of the party. Should she not act to clear the air about circumstantial evidence pointing to corruption by her party? And safeguard her own reputation?

'Not Merely A Corruption Case'

National Democratic Alliance

'Is an Italian fugitive close to the Gandhi family going to be helped in a manner that every democratic institution in India is subverted? Is Indian democracy so vulnerable that it can look a helpless spectator to this subversion?'

It Was Twenty Years Ago...

'Were You Kept In The Dark?'

Arun Jaitley

Who authorized the Law Ministry to deal with this matter? Who authorized the visit of the Additional Solicitor General of India to Britain? Who prevented the CBI officer from accompanying the Additional Solicitor General of India?

Would The PM Come Clean?

Arun Jaitley

This unusual step has been taken to help Mr Quottorocchi merely because of his proximity to Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and the Gandhi family. Is Indian law going to be different for an Italian accused?
