Justice C.V. Bhadang of the Bombay High court at Goa will on Wednesday 3rd October hear the petition filed by Adv. Aires Rodrigues challenging the September 6th order passed by Judge Vandana Tendulkar of the Children’s Court acquitting Pop Star and Padma Shri Remo Fernandes in the 2015 minor girl verbal abuse case.

 

Adv. Aires Rodrigues who was the original complainant in the case had set the law in motion on 17th December 2015 after he received a call from then Rector of Bom Jesus Basilica Fr. Savio Baretto that Remo Fernandes’s son while driving his car in a rash and negligent manner had dashed against a Malvan minor girl at Guirim while she was walking towards Old Goa on a pilgrimage and that the minor girl was verbally abused by Remo Fernandes.

 

Adv. Rodrigues in his appeal to the High Court has stated that the order of the Children’s Court acquitting Remo Fernandes was legally perverse being contrary to law and evidence on record.

Adv. Rodrigues has also submitted that he could not be faulted if Fr. Savio Baretto and the victim girl while deposing in Court had totally deviated from their earlier statement to the Police.

Adv. Rodrigues has further submitted that Children’s Court Judge

exercised jurisdiction not vested in her by law whilst arriving at the findings as regards his professional competence, motive, etc and that those findings ought to be expunged.

Adv. Rodrigues has further sought that the order acquitting Remo Fernandes of the crime be set aside.
