CB moves JMFC for closure of case against Adv Gomes
The Crime Branch has moved the Judicial Magistrate First Class, Margao, to close the Portuguese citizenship case registered against city-based lawyer, Adv Rajiv Gomes, on grounds that only the central government has the exclusive jurisdiction to decide questions regarding loss of Indian citizenship and acquisition of citizenship of a foreign country, asserting that no other forum in India has the power to decide this question. rnReacting to the decision, Adv Gomes hoped that the Crime Branch decision will cap all doubts on such matters, saying only the Presiding Authority in the Union Home Ministry is authorized to deal with citizenship issues.
