CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan, the seventh accused in the SNC-Lavalin case, on Thursday approached the Kerala High Court seeking to split the chargesheet to facilitate speedy trial in the case related to the awarding of contract for modernising three hydel projects to a Canadian company.

According to Pinarayi, the SNC Lavlin case is hanging like ‘Democles Sword’ above his head endangering his bright and brilliant political career, clouding his reputation and hampering the pace of his activities among the general public.

The CBI is attempting to delay the trial of the case, Pinarayi said. He wanted the case against Klaus Triendl, the sixth accused and SNC Lavalin vice-president, and SNC Lavalin, the Canadian company listed as the ninth accused, to be treated as a separate cases.

The case pertains to alleged irregularities in awarding contract for the renovation of three hydel projects to SNC-Lavalin.
