Amazon Takes Enforcement Directorate To Court; Know Why

New Delhi: Amazon.com Inc has moved court against Enforcement Directorate (ED) and sought to quash a probe into one of the company’s 2019 deals, reported news agency Reuters.

ED has been investigating Amazon’s $200 million investment in Future Group for months for suspected violations of foreign investment laws.

Amazon called the probe a “fishing and roving” inquiry in its 816-page filing. It said the ED had sought privileged legal advice and opinions from Amazon and other information not connected to the Future Group deal, the Reuters report said.

ED had summoned multiple Amazon executives in the recent weeks, which included its India head, and the probe reportedly caused “unnecessary harassment,” the American e-commerce was quoted as saying in its filing in Delhi High Court on December 21 by the news agency.

“The directions by the ED asking for disclosure of legally privileged documents and litigation privilege information is derogatory of the principles” laid out in Indian constitution, Amazon said in the filing, which has not been made public.

“The investigation is a fishing and roving exercise.”

Amazon and the ED, which does not disclose investigation details, did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the news agency. The case is likely be heard again on Thursday.
