New Delhi [India], Mar 11 (ANI): The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday attached a Paris-based property of the former wife of Christian Michel, the alleged 'middleman' in the AgustaWestland case.
"Enforcement Directorate attaches immovable property in France in the name of M/s SCI Solaime at 45 Avenue Victor Hugo, Paris, belonging to ex-wife of Christian Michel," read a tweet.
Michel, who was extradited from the UAE in December last year, is currently lodged in Tihar Jail in the national capital in connection with the CBI and ED cases against him related to the matter.
Earlier today, a Delhi court issued a notice to Tihar Jail authorities seeking its response on a plea filed by the ED to interrogate Michel.
The matter is slated for hearing before Special CBI Judge Arvind Kumar tomorrow. He has also issued a production warrant against Michel for the hearing.
The ED had requested the court to let them confront him with fresh documents to further record his statement.
Michel had submitted a letter to the special CBI judge contending that he has been kept in an isolation ward, along with a Kashmiri terrorist and 160 other inmates.
In his letter, Michel also stated that such an act by the jail authorities without the due process of law is “illegal, arbitrary and highly condemnable". (ANI)
