The Republic of India revoked Victoria Commercial bank owner Yogesh Pattni’s passports sometimes in the year 2018, over money laundering and fraud.
The bank has recently been linked to fraud, corruption and Impunity.
The Money laundering scandals at the bank are so serious that they run Chopri, a parallel bank in Indian Bank. The husband and wife who are top-notch criminals have perfected the art of mobilizing for funds from people. They usually take cash and invest in properties in Dubai, and across Africa.
Further reports had indicated that the Central Bank of Kenya was investigating the parallel bank after receiving complaints that some depositors had not been repaid.
Mr Yogesh who likes to publicly bad-mouth Kenya has bought another citizenship for a huge sum and has not declared himself a dual national over here which is illegal, we can reveal.
A close source also told the editor of this site that Yogesh’s passport and those of his children were revoked because they are a threat to national security, hence wanted.
It is is not very clear why the children and wife are denied entry too but it looks like India is strict just like the USA.
The United States has a specific law, which dispenses sanctions to husbands and wives in equal measure. Proclamation 7750—To Suspend Entry as Immigrants or Nonimmigrants of Persons Engaged In or Benefiting From Corruption was signed by George W. Bush in January 12th 2004. It was designed to curtail entry to those who have been designated as aiding and abetting corruption around the world.
The Proclamation targets those deemed as corrupt, including their wives, children and dependents. It reads in part;
Section 1. The entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of the following persons, is hereby suspended:
(a) Public officials or former public officials whose solicitation or acceptance of any article of monetary value, or other benefit, in exchange for any act or omission in the performance of their public functions has or had serious adverse effects on the national interests of the United States.
(b) Persons whose provision of or offer to provide any article of monetary value or other benefit to any public official in exchange for any act or omission in the performance of such official’s public functions has or had serious adverse effects on the national interests of the United States.
(c) Public officials or former public officials whose misappropriation of public funds or interference with the judicial, electoral, or other public processes has or had serious adverse effects on the national interests of the United States.
(d) The spouses, children, and dependent household members of persons described in paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) above, who are beneficiaries of any articles of monetary value or other benefits obtained by such persons.
An immigration expert that we spoke to told us that under such circumstances, the Department of Immigration should revoke his Kenyan citizenship with immediate effect.
