The Lambirds Academy case could take a new twist, as police officials have revealed that more charges are likely to be laid against persons involved in the scam.

While the officials did not divulge any further details as to what these charges could be and the persons likely to be indicted, they noted that this should occur sometime soon.

The police are now awaiting word from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) office in this matter.

When questioned as to whether any government official isbeing treated as a person of interest in the case, the police said they would not be able to provide any such details at this time.

The Ministry for Commerce, Business Development, Investment and Consumer Affairs office was searched for a second time by police on Thursday, July 23, as part of this investigation.

This was confirmed by subject Minister Emma Hippolyte, who did not comment further on the issue.

According to reports, the police had threatened to break down the minister’s door on March 24, 2015 after being refused entry into her office, while she was at parliament.

It was reported that two employees from her office were questioned and made sworn statements to the police. These same employees were expected to appear in court.

Hippolyte had said her ministry is cooperating fully with the police on this matter. This message was also conveyed to Minister of National Security Victor La Cobiniere and the Commissioner of Police.

The indictable charges of human trafficking and money laundering were read to the defendants, including the defunct institution’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Iftekhar Shams.

Four Asian men are facing money laundering and human trafficking charges in relation to the scam: Kumar BatukbhaiChadasama, Ashwin Kanji Patel, and Gurjeet Singh Vilkhu.

  1. Another desparate move by Police and DPP to linger this trial until January for the DPP to safely retire. It took them six months to announce to bring additional charges!!!!!! while we are paying millions of dollars to feed the Nepalese long enough to start empregnanting our women. Just finish off the damn drama, no more charges to drag this any further. Enough is enough.
