National Herald Case: Congress To Hold Press Conferences Across Country Tomorrow

New Delhi: Congress will hold press conferences across the country on Sunday in connection with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons issued to party interim president Sonia Gandhi and senior leader Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald case.

The ED summoned Gandhi to appear before its investigators on June 8 in the case. But since she developed COVID-19 and could not appear before the investigators, the federal agency issued fresh summons to appear before it on June 23.

Her son and former party chief, Rahul Gandhi, is to appear before the agency on June 13 in connection with a money laundering case involving the National Herald, news agency PTI reported.

The ED wants to record both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi’s statements under criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The case, pertaining to the investigation of the alleged financial irregularities under the PMLA, was registered about nine months ago after a trial court took cognisance of the Income Tax Department probe carried out on the basis of a private criminal complaint filed by former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Subramanian Swamy in 2013, the report added.
