New Delhi, Dec 21: The Central Bureau of Investigation which questioned alleged AgustaWestland middleman, James Christian Michel has said that his claims of payments are false.
The probe into the AgustaWestland deal has revealed that large chunks of money had been laundered by raising fictitious invoices. The probe by the Enforcement Directorate further has found that the invoices which were fictitious in nature were raised to companies in Mauritius.
The ED says that one company based in Singapore called M/s Interstellar PTA was used to route the money meant to be paid as bribe into India. The ED suspects that this Singapore company could be linked to Interstellar Technologies in Mauritius which had routed in a large sum of money.
