TRP case: Ex-police officer Sachin Vaze’s confession vindicates Republic

Former Mumbai Police officer, Sachin Vaze, who was handling the TRP case, has made a statement before the Enforcement Directorate and has said that he was acting on the instructions of former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. Vaze has also confessed that he had been given clear political instructions to carry out the arrest of Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief of the Republic Media Network.

In a statement issued, Republic Media has said, “This conclusively establishes the great degree of conspiracy against India’s leading news network, a point we have always made in the courts and which now stands proven.”

Vaze’s statements are part of those recorded on June 19, 2021; June 21, 2021; and July 11, 2021 under the provisions of Sub-Section (2) & (3) of Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002.

The Republic statement further said, “Fundamentally, it has been wholly established that the year-long targeted campaign against Republic involved the biggest misuse and abuse of public office against any Indian media organisation. It has also been established that public offices were being used to maliciously craft fake cases to try and fix and frame Republic.”

According to the statement, the facts in the public domain ultimately prove that the case against Republic was “false, concocted, fabricated, malicious, and aimed at targeting India’s leading news network in a conspiratorial manner”.

“As the Republic Media Network stands vindicated, we want to thank our millions of viewers and supporters across the country and the world for their unwavering and growing support for which we are deeply indebted,” Republic Media said in its statement.
