Now, IT raids Mickky

Mickky with CBI official

Following a CBI raid yesterday, officials of Income Tax department today raided Mickky Pacheco’s residence at Betalbatim.

According to information gathered, the IT officials seized varied documents. However, they refused to divulge any information in this regard.

Interestingly, the officials moved out of Mickky's residence within 20 minutes with some documents. Apparently, they knew what they wanted.

Mickky however was not available for his comments. All his phones, including the mobiles, have reportedly been disconnected by the CBI.

Meanwhile, Mickky's party, the Nationalist Congress Party, today said he could leave the party if he wants.

"How can the party stop Mickky, if he wants to leave", asked NCP spokesperson Trojan D'Mello.

After his alleged involvement in the immigration racket handed over to the Indian government by the US, the NCP appears to be planning to distance itself from the Benaulim MLA.

**ANACLETO VIEGAS -WHAT HUMBUG**

Adv.Viegas recently stated that there is good & evil in all of us. Adv. Viegas I think we Goans do not need a lecture on Christian doctrines.From the time ADAM ate the "forbidden fruit / apple" given to him by EVE, we are all aware we are born sinners or born with sin.However we are constantly educated by parents,schools,churches on the difference between good and evil.I appreciate you have been well remunerated (paid) by your client Mickky Pacheco to defend his misdemeanours.You should stick to serving your client legally & exploiting the loopholes in the Legal system of Goa to absolve your client of all charges. We do not need you to Pontificate to us Goans on the merits of your clients or our morals.We Goans are not as daft as you have come to believe.Your client Mr Pacheco has put himself in the Public Limelight .He is a Public Servant who has been elected to serve his constituents.He buys & demands loyality as he cannot naturally command it...and so we have a right to criticise his actions as we deem fit.Just as you have a right to defend him.He should be a good example to his constituents and to Goa as a whole.However he has chosen to conduct his life in the most despicable manner.Are you suggesting to us Goans,that we should sit quietly and question our own morals?I would suggest you ask your client to "stay out of the Kitchen if he cannot stand the heat!".Your clients misdemeanors have "not" been invented by the Goan Public.He has brought all his misdemeanours upon himself in the belief that he is well above all Laws.. man made or God`s.Perhaps as you are now well paid by him, you could guide him with some Cathecism.Your suggestion that he has helped a lot of Goans get employment abroad is utter rubbish.He did not do this out of goodwill.It was done for RS. 5 Lakhs as alleged in newspapers.This in itself is immoral.As a legislator he should fight to create better employments prospects in Goa. Instead he has chosen to fill up his "POCKETS" & "COFFERS".Consider this in the next outburst you make on behalf of your client.He likes to frame himself...it is his pathological birth inheritance.

THE JOKER****:Mickky Pacheco has pulled one too many "Jokers" from his pack of cards.He is so drunk(not literally..but maybe) with "money and power", that he lives in a fantasy world or\"cloud cuckoo land".He believes he is like a\"non-stick Teflon frying pan.....he can do as he pleases...nothing will stick, it will wash clean.However with this Money laundering and Immigration scam his Glory days will come to an end.This is serious stuff and if convicted he stands to lose his immigration status to the USA.He will be considered a \"persona non grata\"(undesirable).In addition he would lose his financial assets and can have his fixed assets (properties) confiscated too,If it proved/ seen as proceeds from criminal activities /enterprise.His elegibility of the Goa Legislature could also be in jeapordy.But sadly in Goa you need to be a criminal as a main/ prime qualification for a seat as an MLA.It is not optional...it is \"MANDATORY\".

To remove the spotlight from himself,and play the \"BLAME GAME\" he states that his ex-wife Sara was possibly conducting the Immigration scam.The US Diplomatic dept would have ensured that the person they were after was positively indentified.The USA is not known to mess around like the Indian Government may do.They have concrete information , resources and technology for such scams.I hope now with Miccky being caught the other corrupt Goan Politicians will be caught too.Why did Goan boys have to deposit money in Mickkys US Banks?.Many Goans use standard remittance methods to send funds to Goa...Postal orders,western union money transfers,bank transfers etc..DO you smell a rat here or a gutter \"mouse\"?
