In 2012 the PP government paid $175m for a piece of land with state $$$$ that by rights should have cost $40m.
Early this year the Government, after painstaking work uncovered an alleged conspiracy that involves several board members of HDC as well as an employee of the state apparently colluding to defraud the state through inflated payments for a parcel of land in Calcutta, Freeport.
In March 2013 Afra Raymond, then president of the JCC, did several hard hitting investigative pieces on Eden Gardens. Raymond has recently stated that he is ready and willing to be made a witness in the State’s case.
This case has the potential to be a game changer in how we tackle white collar crime here. All JCC documents on the the Eden Gardens matter can be found here.
Keep an eye on it.
