AG SUBODH KANTAK’S CASE AGAINST AIRES ADJOURNED TO 2nd DEC

PANJIM: Panaji Civil Judge Senior Division Mr. Edgar Fernandes today adjourned to 2nd December at 10 am the civil defamation case filed by Goa’s controversial Advocate General Mr. Subodh Kantak against Adv. Aires Rodrigues. Today Adv. Rodrigues submitted to the court his additional written statement to the amended petition of Mr. Subodh Kantak.
After Adv. Rodrigues had 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. The criminal defamation case filed by Subodh Kantak against Adv. Aires Rodrigues was dismissed after Subodh Kantak absconded from appearing for the hearings.
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.
