Breaking News: Prominent RTI activists Arrested in Chennai, are currently missing

V Madhav, Gopalakrishnan and Siva Elango arrested this morning for protesting against non-transparent appointment of Chief Info Commissioner, are not traceable, says colleague who was with them.


Chennai, 1 September, 2010: Three RTI Activists -- Gopalakrishnan, Siva Elango (Makkal Sakthi Katchi) and Madhav Vishnubhatta (Association for India's Development) -- who were picked up Chennai Police at about 11.20 this morning in front of the Raj Bhavan and taken to Guindy police station have gone missing and are currently not traceable, says their close associate Nityanand Jayaraman (9444082401, nity68.new@gmail.com ).

“They were taken in a white Tata Suma, and should have been produced before the magistrate at Saidapet Court and remanded by the police under ‘preventive detention’ provisions of CrPC Section 151 and also Criminal Law amendment (CLA) 71A,” said Nityanand, flustered after a search of about two hours. “However, they are neither at this court, nor at the judges bungalows next to them, nor at the Guindy police station. Guindy police station (044 22341539) claims to have no knowledge of their whereabouts. They appear to have been whisked away to an undisclosed location by the senior inspector of the police station.

The three activists were demonstrating against the unlawful swearing-in of the former Chief Secretary K S Sripathy as Tamil Nadu’s Chief Information Commissioner without an open and transparent process. They stood at the entrance to the Raj Bhavan wearing black blindfolds and holding placards that read "Save RTI", "No transparency in Appointments", "Non-transparent appointment to uphold transparency??"

The DMK Government had convened a meeting of the Selection Committee under RTI on 23 August, 2010. RTI activists, including Madhav, met Ms. Jayalalithaa who is both leader of the opposition and a part of the 3-person selection committee to highlight the lack of transparency in the selection process. The selection process was not preceded by a call for applications from eligible candidates, and Mr. Sripathy's name was revealed even before the Committee could meet. Ms Jayalalithaa's request for information regarding the various candidates was also not honoured. Mr. Sripathy, who is known to be close to the Chief Minister Karunanidhi, is also known for his non-transparent stance. On one occasion, he appealed a decision of the Tamil Nadu Information Commission directing his office to reveal the details regarding names of IAS officers who had disclosed their assets and those who had not. During his tenure as Chief Vigilance Commissioner, Mr. Sripathy had facilitated the exemption of the Directorate of Vigilance and anti-Corruption from the purview of the RTI Act.

It is pertinent to note that the invitation for swearing in of the Chief Information Commissioner sent to the Press and others did not even mention the name of the person being sworn in to uphold the RTI Act, which seeks to enforce transparent and accountable governance. Those in the know opine that this was done to thwart any attempt to bring a stay order against the appointment.

"How can there be a non-transparent process to appoint the keeper of the Right to Information Act. This is cronyism at its worst and spells ill for the RTI Act's implementation in Tamilnadu," said Madhav Vishnubhatta speaking from the police vehicle.
