Mickky caught up in immigration controversy; denies charges

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 06 September 2010 10:12 IST

Former tourism minister Mickky Pacheco, presently out on a bail, is now caught up in another controversy – an international immigration racket.

The news was published by Indian Express on a front page yesterday. It states that the Benaulim MLA is involved in a major international money laundering and fake travel document racket.

Mickky however has flatly denied it. "My bank accounts are clear and I am ready to face any inquiry by any agency", he shot back.

"I am shocked to read what has appeared in the newspaper. My overseas employment agency has ceased to exist since last four years, since I separated from my wife Sara," Pacheco told media persons.

Mickky was forced to resign by NCP high command on 6 June. He was then arrested on 9 July and released on bail on 26 July, for his alleged involvement in mysterious death of Nadia Torrado, his ‘close' friend.

According to the news in Indian Express, inquiry in this regard has been handed over to the CBI by the Ministry for External Affairs, after the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, a unit of US state department, intimated Indian government in this regard. 

The Indian Express report stated:

"After high-level discussions, the MEA passed the case on to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is now making an assessment of the economic and criminal violations the ex-minister might have committed.

CBI officials confirmed the receipt and scrutiny of the evidence provided by the Bureau of Diplomatic Security.

The US advisory followed the arrest of several Goans at various American airports, all of whom were found to be travelling on fake travel documents, and linked in some way with Pacheco. In several cases where Pacheco had recommended the issual of visas, supporting documents submitted by the applicants were found to be fake or forged.

Investigations by US authorities have revealed that Pacheco has, "as of now", a balance of above $15 million in banks in the US, and has recently made transfers of around $2 million to India. Details of all the relevant bank accounts and transactions have been handed over to Indian authorities.

CBI officials said the US has provided the entire documentation in four or five of the illegal travel and immigration cases. In some other cases, details are awaited. The CBI is likely to hand over the cases related to the transfer of foreign exchange to the Enforcement Directorate."

Fransa chief declared persona non grata

February 23, 2006 19:50 IS

The All India Football Federation on Thursday declared Fransa Pax president Mickey Pacheco 'persona non grata', alleging that he had brought ''disrepute'' to the game, league and AIFF.

While the federation allowed the Goan club to continue playing in the 10th ONGC National Football League, it took strong exception to Pacheco's remarks and behaviour in the recent Fransa-AIFF spat.

National Football League coverage

''The president of the Fransa Pax Football Club, Mr Mickey Pacheco, whose actions and statements have brought disrepute to the game of football, the NFL and the AIFF, is declared persona non grata,'' a statement from the federation said.

The decision, taken by AIFF president Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi, has effectively clipped Pacheco's wings. It bars him from corresponding or acting on the club's behalf with the federation or NFL committee.

The statement also said Pacheco would not be allowed to register as one of the officials with the NFL or AIFF.

''He shall not be permitted by the match commissioner and/or LOC to attend Managers Meetings the NFL and shall not be permitted to receive any trophy or award on behalf of the club in AIFF-organised or AIFF registered tournaments in any part of India, until further notice,'' the statement added.

Meanwhile, Fransa Pax will resume their NFL campaign with a match against Air India and play Sporting Club de Goa and Salgaocar subsequently.

The decision came close on the heels of the club apologizing ''unconditionally'' before the disciplinary committee of the AIFF for whatever happened on the field on January 30 during their match against Mahindra United.

Protesting against a spot-kick awarded by the referee to Mahindra in that match, Pacheco, who is also a minister in the Goa government, had threatened that his club would pull out of the league.

How come Mickky has forgotten about BRESOURCES?...this is still operational.Everyone has this information...Goa Police, Indian / Goan Newspapers,Goan citizens etc.So how come Mickky chooses to omit this.?Sara Pacheco has also stated that Mickky was in partnership with a restaurant Owner and another person from Navelim.It is quite obvious that every Goan within the locality knows the Restaurant owner is Matthew Diniz. (kENTUCKEE RrESTAURANT)He was the co-accused in the Majorda Casino extortion case with Mickky.The person from Navelim could only be another Prominent Goan ex-Politician that is "possibly"in charge of Global Goan affairs.He would be used to "notorize" documents for visa applications.

Mickey mouse is surely suffering from hysteric amenesia. He does not remember how many women and companies he operates. He cannot fool the people all the time and no9t surely all the people. He has got to get away by telling lies but not to the US system that operates on systematic ways .

It seems like Mickky Pacheco suffers fromn "SELECTIVE MEMORY".He is HAPPY to mention a copmpany called OVERSEAS MANPOWER PRIVATE LTD.,partnered with his ex-wife Sara.However he fails to mention his company called BRESOURCES MANAGEMENT.why?WHO IS HE TRYING TO MISLEAD & DECEIVE? I AM SURE HE WILL REMEMBER IT SUDDENLY WHEN IT IS MENTIONED TO HIM.

Mickky Pacheco is once again trying to bluff his way around his criminal activities.If his overseas recruitment company called BresourcesManagement located in Miami U.S.A was closed down 4 years ago:why was Nadia Torrado`s name appearing as his Manager on "LINKEDIN". The branch office was listed as his residence at Betalbatim too.I have posted a comment here in July advising Mickky has registered Bresources Management in Luxenburgh in 2009 along with his Partner Viola and a Mr Shaik. If Bresources was closed down in 2006, whay was it registered in 2009 in Luxenburgh?.The only reason for registering a company in Luxenburgh is for Tax reasons and money laundering as I suspected.Banks all over the world have had to relax their strict Banking Privacy laws .Obviously Mickky thinks he is excluded from this due to his larger than life "EGO". Mr Pacheco should wake up from his belief that he can bluff the intelligence of every Goan and buy his way around them.His mantra when caught is"THIS IS A POLITICAL FRAME UP" .He cannot add up the sums of his "MISDEEDS" and Criminal activities.

It is a great shame for all the Indian investigating agencies that every time the irregularities/crimes by the Indians have to be brought to the notice of the Indian investigation agencies by the Foreign Investigating agencies! Has all the authorities in this country become so corrupt and useless that we have to be educated at every step by the Foreigners?

As reported in local daily mickky admited that he is sending the boys on ship visa that means C1D so what they are doing on land? is not the duty of local hiring agent that they return home after their contract is finished.But It's agony of poor boys who are running from one place to another to hide from immigration.
