The recently extradited ‘middleman’, Christian Michel, has taken the name of ‘Mrs Gandhi’ and ‘Son of The Italian Lady’ in relation to the Agusta-Westland Scam, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has informed the Patiala House Court on 29 December (Saturday). The context in which these terms were used is not clear right now
The ED also informed the court that Michel revealed how Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) was removed and the contract was given to Tata. “We need to decipher who the “big man” referred to as “R” is in the communication between Christian Michel and other people. We need to confront Michel with other people to decipher who “the big man” or “R” is,” the ED informed the court as reported by Financial Express.
Countering these reports, the Congress leader RPN Singh claimed that Michel is being pressurised to name a particular family. He questioned why the ‘Chowkidaar’ is trying to pressurise the government agencies.
Furthermore, the ED told the court that Christian Michel has also spoken about a particular ‘son of the Italian lady’ and how he is going to be the ‘next Prime Minister of India.’
