Molnupiravir Case: Magistrate Bholah’s Decision Commented By Arvin Boolell, ICAC Expresses Its Reservations

Must Read

The Anti-Corruption Commission has sent a few lines, by way of a press release, to the various media outlets to express its position on the decision of Magistrate Bibi Azna Bholah in the case of Brijendrasingh Naeck. “Icac has read the magistrate’s ruling… and has reservations about the conclusions reached. The Commission is currently considering legal avenues”, the statement said. It went on to say that the investigation was well underway and that ICAC was “awaiting the receipt of evidence from abroad in order to complete the case”. The press release stresses that the investigation will also take into consideration the inconsistencies between the suspect’s statements in court and what he told investigators during his hearing at the Réduit Triangle.

The Labour Party parliamentary group was before the press yesterday. One of the subjects discussed was the removal of the provisional charge against Brijendrasingh Naeck yesterday. Arvin Boolell, PTr leader in Parliament, returned to the magistrate’s comments against Icac. He described the magistrate’s comments in the Molnupiravir case as a “major slap in the face”. The provisional charge of favouritism against principal pharmacist Brijendrasingh Naeck has been dropped. “It’s a slap in the face… to the Icac but also to its investigator. The Icac acted arbitrarily. It is inconceivable that Dr Bushan Oree, Senior Chief Executive Dalida Allagapen, Minister Jagutpal and Dr Joomaye were not questioned. Now you are surprised that Magistrate Bholah maintains that Icac is on a fishing expedition”, he said.
