Swamy had moved the apex court, demanding an investigation against Chidambaram, against the order of a Special CBI court , which had refused to make the Union minister an accused in the spectrum case.
Upholding the trial court's views, the apex court, after going through the material put on record by the two petitioners, noted that "no material is available, even prima facie, to conclude that Chidambaram had abused his official position, or used any corrupt or illegal means for obtaining any pecuniary advantage for himself or any other persons, including Raja".
The August-verdict also said that a criminal conspiracy between Chidambaram and Raja could not be inferred on the basis of a mere fact that "there were official discussions between the officers of the Ministry of Finance and the Department of Telecom and also between the two ministers".
