He said Magaswarie and the family were also denied their rights to meet Vishnu Moorthy, who is appealing on constitutional points, especially Article 5(2) of the Federal Constitution ensuring the "right of life" read together with Article 4 of the Constitution.
Uthayakumar said Vishnu Moorthy was denied his rights to meet his counsel although three letters were sent to Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani, who has not replied.
They appeared in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court, before Magistrate Sabrina Sonnenberg, facing 77 counts of fraud and one framed in terms of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (Poca).
Of the men, three are Nigerian nationals, and one a Ghanian.
"The magistrate's court has fulfilled the requirement under Section 4(1)(a) of Poca and it has jurisdiction to grant the 21-day remand order on March 29, which ends Tuesday," he said. Uthayakumar rebutted that he made the application as his client was denied to meet his wife, family members and counsel.
Last week Vishnu Moorthy, who worked as a salesman, filed the application to secure his release.
