Probe Matherani charges: CPI(M)

Special Correspondent

The Volcker Committee report should not be treated as conclusive

NEW DELHI: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Saturday reiterated its demand that the Government should ensure that all relevant material and information in regard to the oil-for-food contracts was made available to Justice R.S. Pathak Inquiry Authority and that investigation was "expanded to cover all the beneficiaries."

"All relevant information and material should be investigated, including the purported remarks by Aniel Matherani,'' the CPI (M) Polit Bureau said in a statement in the wake of the latest disclosures by the Indian Ambassador to Croatia.

The party said the Volcker Committee report should not be treated as conclusive given the circumstances in which Iraq was under sanctions and the records obtained under U.S. occupation had not been verified. The inquiry was necessary to establish if there was any wrongdoing and by whom, and action should be taken on that basis.

"It is surprising that the BJP is not demanding an inquiry into the biggest non-contractual beneficiary in the oil contract as listed in the Volcker report. Is it because the BJP-led Government had something to do with this arrangement," the statement asked.
