Enforcement Directorate has told the Patiala High Court that Christian Michel, who was extradited earlier in December, has named ‘Mrs Gandhi’. However, ED didn’t disclose on what reference Michel named a ‘Mrs Gandhi’ during the interrogation.
Later, ED also stated that Michel has also spoken about “the son of the Italian lady” , indirectly pointing to Rahul Gandhi, and how he is going to become the “next prime minister of the country”.Republic TV
Furthermore, during the hearing, ED also told the Patiala House Court that Christian Michel has identified how HAL(Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) was removed from the deal and the deal was offered to Tata instead. ED also seeks to ban Michel’s lawyer’s access to him alleging that the investigation in the case is being tampered. ED alleges that Michel is being tutored from the ‘outside’ through his lawyers.
ED has sought 8 days further custody of Michel. It further seeks to confront Michel about his various visits to India and the people involved in the case.
“We aren’t taking any action against the tutoring that has happened through the lawyer. This is tampering. We don’t dispute that he had handed us the papers. We need to decipher who the “big man” referred to as “R” is in the communication between Michel and other people.,” said ED officials in the Patiala House Court.
