The apex court on Thursday transferred all proceeding pending before the Allahabad High Court related to a cheating case filed against Samsung Electronics’ chief Lee Kun-hee over non-payment of $1.4 million by the South Korean firm to a New-Delhi-based company. A bench headed by Justice Pinaki C Ghosh refused to allow JCE Consultancy to withdraw the contempt petition filed against the chairman, saying “this is the question of consciousness of the court. It is making a fraud on the court. If there are frauds, we will not allow it. We will transfer all proceedings.” The counsel for JCE, a maker of coke calcination packages, had sought to withdraw its plea seeking to initiate contempt action against Lee for not complying with the orders of the SC that had directed him to appear before a Ghaziabad court. The HC has also ordered a magisterial probe and the report is likely to come on Monday, JCT said, adding that Samsung is shying away from the probe. However, Samsung counsel Gopal Subramanium opposed withdrawal of plea by JCT.
