Supreme Court junks Centre’s plea for PMLA order review



Supreme Court

has refused to re-examine its verdict in which it had held that

Prevention of Money Laundering Act



) cannot be invoked when there is a standalone charge of

criminal conspiracy

against a person which is not related to a

scheduled offence

under the Act.
The apex court in verdict had held, “The offence, punishable under Section 120B of the IPC, will become a scheduled offence only if the conspiracy alleged is of committing an offence, which is specifically included in the Schedule.”
Seeking re-examination of the verdict, the Centre filed a

review petition

but a bench of justices Abhay S Oka and Pankaj Mithal dismissed the petition.

“Applications seeking hearing of the review petitions in open Court are rejected. Delay condoned. We have perused the judgment and order dated Nov 29, 2023, which has been sought to be reviewed. There is no error apparent on the record. Even otherwise, there is no ground for review. Review petitions are dismissed,” the bench ordered in its recent order.
