The Supreme Court bench of Justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran reserved its order in the contempt petition filed by Ericsson against Anil Ambani and Reliance Communications for alleged violation of the orders passed by the Court.

Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi appeared for Anil Ambani, while Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal appeared for the Directors of Reliance companies. Anil Ambani was present in Court today along with Reliance Telecom Ltd Chairman Satish Seth and Reliance Infratel Ltd Chairperson Chhaya Virani.

Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave appeared for Swedish company Ericsson.

Dushyant Dave contended that the failure of Reliance to pay the Rs. 550 crore as promised in its undertaking to the Court was deliberate and willful contempt of court.





“It is like a tenant who agrees to vacate a house but later says he cannot because he could not find alternative accommodation.”
Dave also pointed out other projects that have been handed over to other Reliance companies controlled by Anil Ambani.
“They have money for Rafale. Somebody who is getting involved in every conceivable project has no money to pay Rs. 550 crore to us and honour this Court’s order.”
He also attacked Anil Ambani saying that,
“They fly in private jets and have huge houses but no money. it is unfortunate that extraordinary citizens can take the court for a ride like this. They are not ordinary citizens. They are getting advice from the best lawyers in the country. This is no ordinary contempt like that committed by a tenant or a farmer.”
The Supreme Court had on October 23 had given one last opportunity to RCom for clearing the settlement amount, by setting December 15 as the deadline. When this deadline was also missed, the apex court issued contempt notice to Anil Ambani on January 6.
