State tells Kerala High Court charges against advocate Saiby Jose Kidangoor in judges bribery case will be dropped

The case was filed after another lawyer put up a Facebook post in which he said that Kidangoor had been collecting large sums of money from some clients, including some celebrity clients, saying that he would use it to bribe several judges, including Justices A Muhamed Mustaque, PV Kunhikrishnan, Ziyad Rahman AA.

Following the same, one of the judges Justice PV Kunhikrishnan, asked the High Court Registrar General to look into the allegations.

The Registrar General furnished an initial report that he sent to the Chief Justice who in turn directed the vigilance wing of the High Court to initiate an enquiry.

The vigilance wing’s probe found prima facie evidence that Kidangoor had taken money from his clients by saying that he would use it to bribe some judges.

The vigilance report was then sent to the Kerala Police, which in turn initiated its own investigation.

As per a press release from the State Police, the initial investigation indicated that there was substance to the allegations against Kidangoor, leading to the registration of the FIR.

Subsequently, a detailed probe was held by the Police which found no evidence against Kidangoor.
