AgustaWestland case: ED attaches property of Michels ex-wife

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday provisionally attached an immovable property worth Rs 5.83 crore belonging to British national Christian James Michel's former wife in France.

The ED said in a statement that the agency has provisionally attached the immovable property in the name of M/s SCI Solaime situated at 45 Avenue Victor Hugo, Paris, belonging to Christian Michel's ex-wife Valerie Michel, who got the proceeds of the crime from the accused.

The probe agency said that investigations revealed that Michel, the alleged middleman in the Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal, received kickbacks to the tune of 42 million euro.

It said that the funds were transferred from Dubai-based companies to various entities.

The ED said that Michel had transferred the amount received as kickbacks to various entities, including 922,185.76 euro (equivalent to Rs 5.83 crore) to his Valerie Michel and SCI Solaime for investment in the purchase of the immovable property in Paris.
