Whitedot Case: Connection with South Africa

9 years, 8 months ago - April 05, 2013
After a week of investigation, including questioning the alleged mastermind Arun Mossuddee, 24 years in the financial fraud of Rs 700 million with at least 800 victims, the Central CID sleuths have made a breakthrough.

They got confirmation of connection with foreign, especially track South Africa in the scandal White Dot International Consultancy Limited. Indeed, the contacts are to be established with Interpol to issue arrest warrants against people South African nationals closely related to Arun Mossuddee. At a session of questioning yesterday afternoon, Arun Mossuddee agreed to return to the authorities a sum of Rs 35 million as well as luxury real estate in the region of Flic-en-Flac.

Meanwhile, the investigation into the scandal Sunkai Co Ltd, which led to the indictment of couple Ramloll, whose wife Bimla, sees the shadow of Harry Sookun itself as one of the components in the system set up.

Since the beginning of this week, officials ACP Pregassen Vuddamalay and Heman Jangi are working extra hard to confirm details about the Involvement of two South African nationals as partners Arun Mossuddee for the financial operations of White Dot International Consultancy Limited with the investments made by Mauritians. If until the hole in the accounts of the company is estimated at over Rs 700 million, it is not only to spread the activities of Ponzi Scheme, starting in 2008, the total investments of customers would reached the figure of Rs 2 billion.

On interrogation takes place in the presence of his lawyer, Mr Roshi Bhadain, Arun Mossuddee confirmed the names of these two citizens of South Africa's leading partners. The Interpol office in Mauritius has been involved in order to establish collaboration with the International Interpol Whereabouts of the South Africans.

It is not ruled out that international arrest warrants are issued against them because their interrogations by the Central CID prove to be of critical nature to determine the different investments from clients' investments. The first exercises performed in the Audit Trail local banking system indicate that from Rs 2 billion collected, only an amount of Rs 130 million was channeled bank accounts operated on behalf of White Dot International Consultancy Limited and its subsidiaries.

The confrontation between the prime suspects, or Mossuddee Arun, Beemal Bissessur and Sanjeev Luchoomun has not allowed investigators to rise relative to the conduits in place for "siphoning of funds." "All three suspects throws the ball on the money and accusing the other of embezzlement within the company," Le Mauricien learn from police sources informed.

Meanwhile, under pressure from investigators' questions, the main suspect Mossuddee pledged to return to the authorities the sum of Rs 35 million, placed in a personal bank account, as well as real estate owned in luxury the region of Flic-en-Flac. Steps should be initiated formally to recover these "ill-gotten gains" under the Assets Recovery Act. To this end, the Assets Forfeiture Office, under the responsibility of the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Rashid Ahmine, working closely with the Central CID on this aspect of the scandal White Dot International Consultancy.

In addition, a new search of the home of Beemal Bissessur during the afternoon of yesterday helped the police to recover the sum of Rs 297,000. No other bank document compromise could be traced in this exercise at the suspect, who has retained the services of Mr. Rama Valayden.

Seizure of cars and motorcycles used for the distribution of the pizza Napoletana continues. Until yesterday, no less than sixty virtually new cars are concerned while recording files of the National Transport Authority (NTA) is ongoing to confirm the fleet.

The detectives of the Central CID are currently looking for records of audits undertaken by consultants on transactions Dort International White and eighteen other companies of Mossuddee. With the list of clients who invested between Rs 50,000 and Rs 68 million in a specific case, instructions were issued to identify all clients with more than Rs 500,000 placed their names for the purpose of prosecution.

This category of customers, to be examined in advance by the authorities, will be subsequently charged with offenses under the Money Laundering and Financial Anti-Money Laundering act. The Mauritian was unable to confirm if the magistrate, whose name appears among the customers of White Dot International Consultancy Limited, is among those who have invested more than Rs 500,000.

Another new track from the Central CID investigation is focused on hunting "canvassers" to convince customers to invest in the Ponzi Scheme. These "canvassers" are many members of the police force as well as various grades of officials who thought they could supplement their month with these solicitations. They run the risk of being accused of complicity in this massive fraud.

Thus, HQ Central CID, they are preparing to make a new wave of arrests once the first stage of the examination of the three main suspects passed.
