Jacqueline Fernandez’s lawyer released a statement against the defamation lawsuit filed by Nora Fatehi

A few days ago, Nora Fatehi gave a statement in the defamation case she filed against Jacqueline Fernandez before the Patiala Court in Delhi. Nora Fatehi stated in her statement submitted before the magistrate under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure that she had been falsely accused of the charges and was used as a scapegoat in the case.

The actress stated, “They have called me a gold digger and accused me of having a relationship with a con artist (Sukesh Chandrasekhar) and included my name in an ongoing criminal case to divert attention away from them.”

Now, a statement has been made by Jacqueline’s lawyer. According to News 18, “We have not received any official communication from Honourable Courts, so we cannot confirm any such developments. It is a matter of admitted fact that Jacqueline has never ever made any statement against anyone, for that matter, before any electronic, print or social media. Jacqueline has always maintained a dignified and graceful silence about the case as the matter is sub-judice and pending before Honourable Courts for adjudication. However, that does not mean she can be dragged into certain unwarranted legal proceedings for no fault. Whenever legal Arguments are made, advanced or written notes are filed before Judicial Forums for the purpose of adjudication. Such arguments cannot be discussed like this before the public domain. That itself is an act of civil and criminal Contempt of the respective legal proceedings. The Judicial proceedings have certain sanctity which has to be respected.”

The statement further added, “However, if Jacqueline is compelled into an unwarranted litigation or dragged into fake litigation against her Will, She shall approach the Honourable Delhi High Court for her rightful legal remedy for protecting and safeguarding her Fundamental Right as Guaranteed by the Constitution of India. Separate Legal Action for Contempt of Courts can be considered if the records of the Court are leaked and used to initiate legal proceedings wherein certain people are not even party to that proceedings. My client reserves the right to sue for malicious prosecution in criminal courts against the people responsible for such illegal and malicious Act which kindly note.”

For the uninitiated, Nora sued the actress for defamation in December of last year. In the Sukesh Chandrasekhar money laundering case, both Bollywood actresses are likely to be witnesses. In accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, Sukesh Chandrasekhar and Leena Maria Paul were detained by the ED in relation to an alleged extortion racket operating out of Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
