BENGALURU:Lokayukta police filed a memo on Friday, objecting to the High Court stay in three cases of illegal denotification registered against former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, seeking that the matter be posted to Monday.

In the memo filed before Justice Rathnakala, the Lokayukta police submitted that the court on September 15 granted an interim order staying further proceedings against Yeddyurappa in the cases registered based on a CAG report for offences punishable under various sections of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 and IPC.

Lokayukta police further stated that Section 19 (3) of the PC Act specifically prohibits any court from granting interim orders.  The apex court as well as this high court have held that no stay can be granted in petitions filed either under Article 226 of the Constitution or Section 482 of CrPC with reference to matters arising out of Prevention of Corruption Act. Hence the interim order passed by this court is contrary to law, the Lokayukta police said.
