Attorney General supports granting of security clearance to Sun TV

In a relief to Sun TV Network, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi has supported the granting of security clearance to the 33 channels of the network. According to media reports, Rohatgi said that the network, which is owned by Kalanithi Maran, cannot be denied security clearance on the basis of corruption cases investigated against the promoter. He further stated that security clearance can be granted as agencies are probing cases related to corruption, not national security; and corruption cases cannot be used to deny security clearance.

The Ministry of Information & Broadcast (MIB) had sought the consultation of Rohatgi on the matter after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) denied the network security clearance on the basis of ‘economic security’. After the Home Ministry’s refusal to review the matter, the MIB approached the Law Ministry seeking the opinion of its top law officer.  

News of this saw the stocks of Sun TV rise by 11% and ended the day with an almost 8% rise. However, it has to be noted that while the opinion of the Attorney General is usually accepted, it is not mandatory for any ministry to follow. If the Home Ministry still decides to follow its original decision, the only option for the network would be to seek a legal order from the court.
