    New Delhi, November 22: In further embarrassment for the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), the apex court has criticised the appointment of P J Thomas as Chief Vigilance Commissioner (CVC).

    Raising doubts over the appointment of CVC, the Supreme Court said: “How can CVC function effectively when there is a chargesheet pending against him in a criminal case. At every stage someone will raise objection that he is an accused in a criminal case.â€￾

    "Without looking into the file, we are concerned that if a person is an accused in a criminal case, how will he function as CVC," a bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia observed after Attorney General G E Vahanvati placed the file in a sealed cover.

    The bench said it will go through the file and post the matter after two weeks.

    "We will sit together and go through the file," the bench also comprising Justices K S Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar said.

    P J Thomas is an accused in the Palmolein import case. As Telecom Secretary, Thomas did nothing to prevent 2G spectrum scam.

    Earlier, Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj raised objections on the appointment of CVC, which was ignored by the Prime Minister.

    Another embarrassment for govt as SC questions appointment CVC

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has questioned the appointment P J Thomas as the Chief Vigilance Commissioner. Questioning the appointment the apex court said how Thomas would work as CVC since a chargesheet naming him is pending in a criminal case.

    "Without looking into the file, we are concerned that if a person is an accused in a criminal case how he will function as CVC," a bench headed by Chief Justice S H Kapadia observed after Attorney General G E Vahanvati placed the file in a sealed cover.

    The bench said it will go through the file and posted the matter after two weeks.

    "We will sit together and go through the file," the bench also comprising Justices K S Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar said.

    With a pending chargesheet against P J Thomas, he will find it very difficult to function as CVC, the court said. It also said how an accused in Palmolein import scam can be made to handle such a sensitive post.

    The name of Thomas figures in the chargesheet filed in a palmoleine export case.

    Government had placed in a sealed cover file relating to the appointment of P J Thomas as Chief Vigilance Commissioner in the Supreme Court.
