Former Head of NICIL, Colvin Heath-London remains in Police custody being questioned about various land deals and leases done under the last government.
Heath-London who was fired by the PPP government back in October, was arrested on Friday and taken into custody on allegations of conspiracy to defraud the state.
His Attorney Nigel Hughes, has blasted the Police over his client’s arrest and treatment in custody. The Attorney in a statement indicated that Heath-London was being questioned about transactions and board decisions made when he was not the head of NICIL.
Mr. Hughes explained that many of the allegations that his client is facing are related to decisions and deals that were inked under another NICIL Head, who passed away two years ago.
He said various minutes of the board meetings at NICIL would back up that fact. But in a statement last evening, NICIL claimed that one of the documents detailing minutes of one of its board meetings appeared forged. It intends to file a complaint about that to the Police.
Attorney Hughes maintains that his client is being wrongly detained and he plans to challenge his ongoing detention.
