The PNB scam has revealed it all. From fake LOUs to crores of money used for personal benefits, the Nirav-Choksi fraud has been covered extensively. However, there still are voices that are not making it to the creamy layer: the voice of the common man. LegalNotes uncovers the truth behind the retail fraud undertaken by Mehul Choksi as it looks extensively about the whistleblower's part of the story. In addition, Vipin Malik, a former central board member of the RBI analyses on what went wrong with the regulators involved in the process. In our international section, Bangladesh is observing an unusual period. With popular leader Khaleda Zia convicted in an embezzlement case, the general assembly elections to be held in December would be the key that would perhaps put an end to the political wrangling going on in Bangladesh. The regular section features El Salvador's race against abortion law, the tussle between court and cattle sports and actress Priya Varrier's wink that swept the nation.
Legal Notes, the latest addition in the Newsline Publications group, proposes to bring a fresh perspective to legal issues. On any given day, there could be 40 different items in the news with respect to courts – right down from the Supreme Court to the district court on a range of issues from Blue Whale to NEET to Love Jihad and Blackberry messages. It’s as bewildering as it is exhilarating. In fact, it’s liberating that in this democracy of ours we have the ability to debate agree or dissent as we continue our march onwards. Legal Notes will seek to assess, analyse, debate and dissect how the business of law impacts our lives in a hundred different ways. LN hopes to record the business of law each month for your reading pleasure.
