Police yet to respond on Mickky's parole plea

PTI, PANAJI | 15 June 2015 23:13 IST

Goa Police is yet to write back to prison authorities on the request of former minister Fransisco Miccky Pacheco seeking parole for a month to look after his ailing mother.

Pacheco, who was convicted for slapping a junior engineer of the electricity department in 2006, is currently lodged in Sada sub jail since this month. 

"We received the request from Pacheco to grant him parole which we have forwarded to the police for their report. We are yet to receive report from the police," Inspector General of Prison Elvis Gomes told PTI today. 

Gomes said the decision on his parole would be taken only after police reverts with their report. 


Pacheco has applied for 30 days parole on grounds that he needs to attend to his ailing mother and look after her. 

The Goa Vikas Party leader and MLA from Nuvem was forced to quit the BJP ministry led by Laxmikant Parsekar in April this year after Supreme Court refused to quash his sentence given by Judicial Magistrate First Class, Margao in the assault case.

Goa Police will only respond positively and not in favour of a parole , if the hafta is "not sufficient".

Until then, they will be negotiating a price with the convict.

Negotiations with the convict or his cronies can take from 2 to 6 months.
