He said "the goal is to decapitate the Labour Party and putting an end with him."
Moreover, in the extension of this money laundering case, the former governor of Central Bank, Rundheersing Bheenick hospitalised since will also have to explain the provenance of one million rupees found in his home during a search operation conducted during weekend and on the presence of internal official documents at the bank.
