AAP is likely to see several administrative and political implications as it may lose its status if the Election Commission of India receives complaints from other parties seeking action, and it may also see its assets and bank accounts being attached as part of routine PMLA case proceedings

The Enforcement Directorate will file its ninth supplementary chargesheet, known as prosecution complaint, in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case on Friday, naming chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party as prime “accused”, News18 has learnt. AAP, once named an “accused” in the chargesheet, will be the first political party in India to be charged under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

AAP is likely to see several administrative and political implications as it may lose its status if the Election Commission of India receives complaints from other parties seeking action, and it may also see its assets and bank accounts being attached as part of routine PMLA case proceedings.

News18 reported about ED’s decision to make the political party AAP an “accused” first.

According to sources, the party will be made an accused through its national convener Arvind Kejriwal under section 70 of PMLA. The section explains that a company or an “association of people” can be booked or made an accused if the person in charge of the company or the association is aware of the contravention of any provision of PMLA.

ED is likely to evoke the Representation of the People Act to establish its points made in the chargesheet: the party’s official bank account was used to launder the money generated from the kickbacks earned through the alleged liquor scam; the money was used to fund elections in Goa.

This action by the agency may result in the attachment of the party’s assets and bank accounts as the law demands in connection with the money laundering cases.
