8 Big Quotes From Court Order That Declared Jayalalithaa Guilty

The court order declaring Jayalalithaa guilty in corruption case.

J Jayalalithaa, one of the most powerful and popular politicians from Tamil Nadu, will spend at least another week in jail. The 66-year-old former Chief Minister's request for bail will be heard on Tuesday, the Karnataka High Court has decided. On Saturday, she was sentenced to four years in jail and fined Rs 100 crore.

Jayalalithaa was arrested last weekend after being found guilty of corruption by a court in Bangalore, where the case against her was tried to ensure that the proceedings against her would be fair and free of any influence in her home state. She was replaced by another leader from her party as chief minister because her conviction means she is disqualified from office.
Here are eight big quotes in the lengthy order that sentences her:
  1. Prosecution has proved beyond reasonable doubt that Jayalalithaa acquired immovable properties worth Rs 53 crore for which she could not account. (Read full court order)
