Mr. Joseph told a news conference here today that he had submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister on Wednesday pointing out that Mr. Alphons had violated the service rules by soliciting funds for a private educational Trust in the UAE, accepting Rs. 2 lakhs from the Trust, `wasting official time' and interfering in the functioning of the Trust and `indulging in character assassination and blackmail with impunity'.
Mr. Joseph said that he along with the IAS officer and some others had jointly floated the charitable Trust to set up a school in the capital. They had also toured various countries in West Asia and raised Rs. 1.14 crores for the project. However, later, Mr. Alphons began trying to foist his brother on the school management with the ultimate objective of taking control of the Trust at an appropriate time. He (Mr. Joseph) and his relatives were being threatened with dire consequences on account of his stiff resistance to such attempts, the former AG said.
Mr. Alphons, he said, had been active in the running of the Trust as `Conceptualiser' after being denied permission by the Government to join it. The director board of the Trust, which met here today, had decided to remove Mr. Alphons from the post of `Conceptualiser', and his brother, K. J. Roy, against whom an internal investigation had already been ordered, from the post of director, Mr. Joseph said.
