On Monday, former Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Collendavelloo was summoned to the Independent Commission against Corruption headquarters as part of the investigation into the St-Louis affair. On leaving the Icac, he made a brief statement to the press.
“I gave the explanations that the investigators wanted to know. There is no question of being satisfied or not. This is an interrogation! I shared all the information I could provide,” he said. He answered questions and reported the facts surrounding this case, which concerns the CEB’s purchase of turbines in 2020 for the St Louis station.
Ivan Collendavelloo stated that his lawyer wrote to the Anti-Corruption Commission in 2020 to tell them that he was willing to be heard in the case.
The questioning of Ivan Collendavelloo lasted three and a half hours. His lawyer, Hervé Duval, was present. The former number 2 in the government was allowed to leave after the hearing.
