AG SUBODH KANTAK’S CASE AGAINST AIRES: HEARING ON 2ND NOV

PANJIM: The civil defamation case filed by Goa’s controversial Advocate General Mr. Subodh Kantak against Adv. Aires Rodrigues will come up for hearing before Panaji Civil Judge Senior Division Mr. Edgar Fernandes on November 2nd at 10 am.
After Adv. Aires Rodrigues highlighted the exorbitant fees being paid to the Advocate General, Mr. Subodh Kantak initiated two defamation proceedings against Adv. Rodrigues which from the JMFC’s court moved to the High Court and later to the Supreme Court of India. While one defamation case filed by Subodh Kantak against Adv. Aires Rodrigues was dismissed after Subodh Kantak absconded form appearing for the hearings, the other is pending before the Civil Court at Panaji.
Advocate General of Goa, Mr. Subodh Kantak has sought Rs 15 crores by way of compensation from Adv. Rodrigues which he has vowed to use for charitable causes like old age homes, orphanages and towards the welfare of animals.
Mr. Subodh Kantak who had been accused by Adv. Aires Rodrigues of being the country’s highest paid Advocate General has had to face perhaps the longest cross examination ever with Adv. Rodrigues intensely quizzing Mr. Subodh Kantak on his character, conduct and competency as Advocate General. Adv. Rodrigues has cross examined Advocate General Subodh Kantak for over 26 hours.
