It has now come to light that the notorious ex-police officer Sachin Vaze, who was handling the TRP case, has made a statement before the Enforcement Directorate and has said that he was acting on the instructions of the Former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. Vaze has also confessed that he had been given clear political instructions to carry out the arrest of Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief of the Republic Media Network. This conclusively establishes the great degree of conspiracy against India’s leading news network, a point we have always made in the courts and which now stands proven.
Vaze’s statements are part of those recorded on 19 June, 2021, 21 June, 2021 and 11 July 2021 under the provisions of Sub-Section (2) & (3) of Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.
- Fundamentally, it has been wholly established that the year-long targeted campaign against Republic involved the biggest misuse and abuse of public office against any Indian media organisation.
- It has also been established that public offices were being used to maliciously craft fake cases to try and fix and frame Republic– India’s most loved news network.
- The facts in the public domain ultimately prove that the case against Republic was false, concocted, fabricated, malicious, and aimed at targeting India’s leading news network in a conspiratorial manner.
- The motivated action against Republic in the past one year remains the biggest attack on fundamental rights executed by a political instruction.
At the end of this year-long campaign of vendetta against Republic, the unstoppable truth has tumbled out. As the Republic Media Network stands vindicated, we want to thank our millions of viewers and supporters across the country and the world for their unwavering and growing support for which we are deeply indebted. As the truth begins to emerge like a tsunami, we are grateful to our supporters who stood by us through it all.
