Active involvement in the process of getting justice and its implications
1) UAE Judgments - A brief history and current perspective

The petitioner was an established businessman and investor engaged in the business of ‘Trading and General Contracting’ in Abu Dhabi, UAE. He was trapped in a fabricated police case quote "Using force against Government employee and assault" unquote. He was brutally tortured and imprisoned illegally for over a year. The Judges of both the Trial Court and the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi found that the petitioner was innocent; ‘a martyr’.

The Hon’ble Judges instructed the authorities to release the victim immediately. The case was wholly false, baseless and that it was fabricated by the police for personal gain. Court observed the policeman's disclaim from his complaint only magnified his notoriety. It further reiterated the condemnation of prosecutor. The Court, therefore, ordered to restore the victim’s dignity, and compensate him for all his losses while pronouncing this ‘historic Judgment'.

Despite both the Courts declaring him to be innocent and directing the authorities to compensate the businessman for all his losses and restore his dignity, the Abu Dhabi authorities resorted retaliatory tactics to save their faces. Injustice has again been committed against the petitioner, the victim was re-victimized over and over again in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and later he was deported back to India.

After reaching India, the petitioner has made every effort to uphold his dignity and his rights. He has made representations to the Union Government of India asking them to grant him leave to institute legal proceedings against the state of UAE. In October 1996 a writ petition was filed by petitioner before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. The facts enumerated therein would clearly establish the callous attitude of the authorities in UAE.

The Supreme Court of India took cognizance of the case and suggested the Delhi High Court deal with it. The very fact that the Supreme Court enabled us to withdraw the petition and file it under Article 226 of the Constitution in the High Court of Delhi, shows that the Hon’ble Supreme Court found merit in the case. The petitioner has thereafter moved the Delhi High Court.

The Hon'ble High Court of Delhi, was pleased to issue a mandamus to the Government, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to settle the matters within two months. The directives of the Hon'ble High Court of New Delhi have literally been kicked out by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. In a recent letter to the Ministry of External Affairs enquiring the status of the case under the Right to Information Act, the MEA has sent an evasive reply that they do not have any records of the case with them.

Under such a very compelling circumstance, an attempt is being made here to publish the relevant records of the case and communications with the MEA in different stages. Read full text at: Is the External Affairs Ministry of India above the Law?
