The CBI, which is probing receipt of alleged kickbacks in the Rs. 3,600 crore VVIP AgustaWestland deal, is likely to send Letters Rogatory (LR) to authorities in Singapore and Seychelles to seek details regarding certain monetary transactions under its scanner. The Seychelles and Singapore connections have emerged in the probe for the first time.

“The probe has taken under its scanner certain transactions from an accused Tunisian firm to an intermediary firm in Mauritius, which in turn, routed the funds to a few other firms based in the same country as well as in Singapore and Seychelles,” said a CBI source. The alleged transactions were done through banks located in Port Louis in Mauritius, Victoria in Seychelles and in Singapore, said the source.

The details, once procured, would help in determining the nature of the transactions, said the source. The CBI has already requested, via LRs, authorities in United Kingdom, Italy, Tunisia and Mauritius details on the money-trail but is yet to get a response.

An Italian court recently handed out a two-year jail term to former Finmeccanica CEO Giuseppe Orsi and its UK-based subsidiary AgustaWestland’s former boss Bruno Spagnolini for falsifying invoices, but cleared them of the more serious corruption charges in the deal.

  1. Indain Defence minister has confirmed that corruption has taken place and the minister said he is taking immediate steps to recover the amount of deposit money.

    While l all countries concern are investigating the case, Pl/FUI is failing to even comment and to open a priminary investigation in this casethough all ividence so far shows that money was transferred in banks in Seychelles?Pl and Fui might tell us that they have not received any demand from Indain Governement yet ,so there is no need for investigation,But since ,it seems there are Banks operating on our soil allegedly invovled.should it be a normal process for FUI and the justice department look into whether these banks allegded in this case are really involved regardless if the government has been asked by Indian/Italian courts or not,especially after Seychelles has been on several occasions been blamed Internationally a Haven for International financial crimes etc...?Or is it that Pl government is directly involved that it is afraid that by coorpating too many high pl official would be unmasked ,name and shame?WHy is Pl/FUI silent on the issue,Tell us Partilpep?

  3. Seychelles is supposed to have anti-corruption body Pl.So far we have seen desktop calendar of the ETHICS cOMMISISIOON WITH LOTS OF SLOGANS BUT NO ACTIONS.We seen slogans such as NO TO CORRUPTION,äätheslogan must have been conceived to fool public and at the same time disguise the government lack of actions in regards to corruption.The Ethics Commission must not printed nice looking posters with nice slogans or desktop calendar ,but it needs of amending laws to give the Commsion reeal teeth.

  4. Italian court has presented a hand written list that explains how bribe money was to be divived up byMr Hashke.The alter is coorporating with presecutors as part of a plea deal reached with the court.In a secretly recorded conversation by Itlaian Intelligent service,mr Hashke was heard telling a Business partner that TYAGIS were not a risk of being caught because they were paid in Cash and there was no money trail,accroding to a transcript contained in the arrest warrant.He goes on to say that "they will be able to say that they paid a lot for engineering"Saif Hashke.

    If Pl,FUi does not act on themselves to save their already tarnished image,then the Indain Court when time comes will enveil the fact and name Pl collaborators.If I would be Pl ,I would have long taken the iniative and start investigating now.

  5. When it comes to pressuring Pl government in this case,i think the Indian government would avoid that.Instead it would use the situation to pressure Pl differently,e.g ensuring that deals with China are blocked /stop and other geopolitics issues.For the Indain government the case has provided India with a pressuring tool to control Pl foreign polcies towards China etc....
    There is simply more long-term benefit for India than forcing Pl to explain itself in the extual money launderying scandal.That getting Seychelles distancing itself from China favore Indian interests.

  8. What a rip-off! another increase for electricity, water and sewage has just been announced by that sucker at PUC when the world price of oil is at its lowest in 4 years! The public has to pay for the government wastage, overseas travel and pension for useless politicians! And the Seychellois is still dancing, drinking and making festivals whilst the country is going bankrupt one more time!
    History told us that the Emperor played the violin whilst Rome was burning, are we repeating history?

  12. FAure is a donkey,morgan the monkey.Two incompetwent thieves enjoying themselves with stolen tax payers money.We awaiting for Dr FAURE to tell us what his qualification.We know we study in a Tobacco plantation in Cuba but he has failed todate to tell us what he achieved as qualification------Hole digger,Chief cigar roller,we donot know to date and strangely this tobobcco plantation worker wants to be president by appointment.Morgan has to answer Seychellois on these illegal deals he unilaterally made with Khalfia regarding Airseychelles, the $4,5 millions he stolen in a fake contract deal,the death of the Muaritius prominent hotel expert butchered at Port Claud,Michel illegal OFFSHORE company,RENE mango plantation in Australia,etc..etc..etc..

  13. We awaiting for those NGOS like LUGO which has just changed name to hide itself to act).Speak out ,name and shame the rogue paritlepep system and criminals ,and organized protests when necessary like NGOS should and must do.Sitting with Michel like Pierre at State house to drinking tea and eat cakes is not the role of NGOS.We need pro-active and effective NGOS that acts.

    Partilepep is destroying Seychelles on all front--our history by destroaing archival documents,selling out our patrimony,illegally allowing Indain to march in Hindu religious procession of our Christian streets,building illegal hindu temple on our Christian soil,allowing Khalfia to paln and deice how Seychelles should look,etc,,etc,,etf,,

    there is one solution to stop partilepep criminals -execution.

  14. Th diea of displaying Sechelles culture and tradition is an idea coming from SFp supporters and blogers not Partilepep who has always been trying and still trying (with illegal Hindus religious procession to destroy our history ,culture and traditions).

    Traditional wedding,but also traditons customs as part of a creoel carnival could be developed .There arexstill amyn details missing in the tradtion wedding ---that coules are driven in Carte ,accompanied by traditional ROMANS song ,or CAMTOLE music(no triangle but guitar,violine,tamborring)that followers of the serenade are also dressed in traditional wedding customs,etc..etc..etc..

    6.41
    I donot want Seychellois to set fire in buildings paid with their money but rather execute these donkeys to the likes of Morgan,Govenden,Pierre,RAm,Pter Simon,Rene Michel,Gurkas,Scully,and all these criminals and foreing collaborators raping Seychellois people rights,dignity and freedom.

    iNDAIN SHOULD CELLEBRATE THEIR RELIGIOUS CELREMONY IN India NOT IN SEYCHELLES.hAVE YOU EVER SEEN Seychellois CHRISTINA GOING ON iNDAIN STREETS TO CELEBRATE CHRSITAINITY,OR Pakistani ON iNDAIN STREETS TO CELEBRATE iSALAM RELIGIOUS CEREMONY,OR Tibetan GOING TO iNDAI TO CELETB^RATE buHDDISM DONKEY.
