The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The Kerala High Court judgement is a resounding vindication of the stand taken by the CPI (M) that the Lavalin case was a politically motivated case. The Kerala High Court has upheld the judgment of the trial court discharging Com. Pinarayi Vijayan in the SNC Lavalin case.
The High Court has stated that Pinarayi Vijayan was deliberately targeted by the CBI. The Court has comprehensively debunked all the allegations levelled against him.
The Lavalin case was sought to be used to besmirch the image of a leader of the CPI(M) and the Party. The High Court verdict has effectively exposed these efforts.
