Following MedPoint Scandal: Bank Accounts Remain Frozen

8 years, 7 months ago - September 24, 2013
Even if the state had purchased the clinic Medpoint December 28, 2010 to Rs 144.7 million, it's not tomorrow that its shareholders will get their money. During the past week, a new order was issued by the Court under section 56 (3) (a) of the Prevention of Corruption Act 2002.

This follows a request made by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) on September 6. The order prohibits the Bank of Baroda and State Bank of Mauritius (SBM) to allow withdrawals, transfers or other transactions with the money from the sale of Medpoint. This without the explicit permission of a judge in chambers. '' The attachment order 'was issued for the first time on November 10, 2011, when Judge David Chan Kan Cheong ordered the freezing of accounts of the clinic.

A priori, these bank accounts remain frozen until the end of this case, which has contributed to the breakup of the alliance MSM / PTr / SIMDUT in mid-2011. It also led to the arrest of Jugnauth, Maya Hanoomanjee and some officials. Only former Minister of Health, Maya Hanoomanjee was bleached before. The charges against the other players follow their course.

Rs 120 million are still stuck at the Bank of Baroda. Rs 5.2 million were deducted from the sum of Rs 144.7 million to repay a debt of the company with the SBM and Rs 15.5 million paid to Shalini Devi Malhotra, wife of Dr. Krishan Malhotra, principal shareholder Medpoint . Shalini Devi Malhotra is the daughter of former President of the Republic and current leader of the remake of 2000, Sir Jugnauth.

At MSM, we always argued that this case goes back to before the general elections of 2010, before joining the government oranges and that the party believes to have been "trapped" by the Labour Party. Jugnauth has always maintained that he had declared his interests. Labour side, it says that it would only be the case of MSM. Remains that there are connections that tend to show that the purchase of clinical MedPoint was planned before the last general elections. Procedures were started, supporting the opposition, but it was only after the election that things have materialized.

When Private Notice Question 9 November 2011, the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Xavier-Luc Duval, told Parliament that the Ministry of Health had requested, December 22, 2010 the Ministry of Finance, then controlled by Jugnauth to send a Departmental Warrant amounting to Rs 144,701,300, representing the cost of land and construction of Medpoint clinic. The next day, the Ministry of Finance approves of Health to reallocate this money to purchase a geriatric hospital. The "departmental warrant" will be issued on December 27 and the check made payable to Medpoint the next day, December 28, 2010.

MSM left the government in August 2011, and November 10 is the Medpoint accounts will be frozen. Note that the State Investment Corporation (SIC) and the State Insurance Company (SICOM) occur Medpoint shareholders. They hold a little over 20% of the shares.
