Greenpeace India’s Challenge Over Blocked Funds Accepted by High Court

NEW DEHLI, India - The court issued notices to the home ministry and several Indian banks calling on them to respond to Greenpeace India’s writ petition which is to be heard on Tuesday 26th May.

“We believe we have a strong case”, said Samit Aich, Executive Director of Greenpeace India. “We’re calling for the order to be quashed because of the arbitrary and unconstitutional way the home minister has acted. Freezing both our national and international bank accounts is beyond the scope of the Foreign Contributions Regulations Act and the jurisdiction of the home ministry.”
