ED gets more time to question alleged AgustaWestland middleman
The Enforcement Directorate has requested the court to grand it more time to question the alleged AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal middleman Christian Michel.
The authorities have informed the court that the alleged middleman has misused the liberty of legal assistance. There are allegations that the middleman has requested the support of his legal aid to deal with the questions that are aimed to find the connection between a senior leader of one of the two powerful national parties and the case.
The ED has asserted that the extension of his custody was very important to unearth the conspiracy behind the case.
Convinced by the arguments, the court has granted nearly seven more days for the ED to question the middleman.
Since the extradition of the middleman from Dubai, several political leaders have been undergoing sleepless nights.
It is a fact that there are some leaders in the country who fear the extension of the middleman’s custodial period. It is in this middleman’s words the political future of many leaders lie.
Clearly, the ruling is more interested in the politics of this issue. Evidently, it uses the weapon to counter the opposition’s attempt to tie the ruling in the Rafale corruption allegation.
