Navin Ramgoolam suspected of laundering

The former Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam following his legal troubles in Mauritius might also have trouble with the British authorities. The former strongman of the Mauritian political chessboard and Labour leader is suspected "of having laundered approximately 500 million euro for several years through its various credit cards," as reported by the site.

The National Crime Agency in Britain has thus asked for information from the local office of the Attorney General about what was inside safe deposit boxes seized at the residence of Navin Ramgoolam in February.

"London would have discovered that Navin Ramgoolam directly poured money on these cards. Investigators would also learned that he has acquired a house in Croydon, Surrey, for a former beauty queen through his Mauritian accountant in London .. . ", as the website said the newspaper L'Express on the island of Mauritius.
As a reminder, February 6, 2015, around 220 million rupees comprising also foreign currency in two safes and several suitcases were recovered during a search operation at the residence of Navin Ramgoolam in Vacoas.
