The bench said in its order that permission was granted to Swamy under the Section 5 (3) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988. However, another request by DMK General Secretary K Anbazhagan to intervene as party respondent and assist the SPP was dismissed. Swamy had earlier made a submission saying that he was the original complainant in the case and must be allowed to implead.
