Thoughts on economics and liberty

Clarifying the credit card charges against Teesta Setalvad, for my record. It’s all good.

Re: the recent case about Teesta Setalvad, I had concerns about the way accounts were being portrayed in the press. I'm now clear that this is not an issue.

Source: http://www.sabrang.com/news/2015/amended%20synopsis_TS_.pdf – see this report.

My comment: 

he question I had asked Teesta Setalvad has been satisfactorily resolved. See: http://www.sabrang.com/news/2015/amended%20synopsis_TS_.pdf

The way it happened was this. If Rs.X out of a total credit card bill of Rs.10000 was for official purposes, then Sabrang Trust paid Rs.X directly to the credit card company. Teesta paid the balance Rs.10000-X. 

This is QUITE OK. 

I was earlier under the impression that the entire Rs.10000 was paid by Sabrang Trust and various adjustments made later. That would have been messy. That, in any event, is not the case. The case is much simple and neater. I see no issues with this particular method of payment.

As far as other charges are concerned, I have no doubt these are baseless. I will not waste time studying/pursuing them.

Teesta, with this, you are now in the clear as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for publishing the detailed report.

    Do you really believe Teesta is being framed and that she has not diverted donation money for personal use?

    I noticed in the above report that she has given her credit card statement and bank statement of the year 2011-2012 wred to their account, their child’s account and also their private company. It just does nothereas the police affidavit says she had different credits before that and she has not given documents related to those yet. There are also discrepancies in the money being transfer add up.

    What do you think about the following article?

    There are some big typos in the above comment. I am sorry about that. I will rewrite it here below.

    I noticed in the above report that she has given her credit card statement and bank statement of the year 2011-2012 as supporting documents, but the police affidavit says she had different credit cards prior to this and that personal payments made by these cards were reimbursed by the NGOs. The affidavit also says that money was transferred to their personal account, their child’s account and also their private company account and the explanations in the reports above dont add up.

    I haven’t seen the police affidavit but this statement in the PDF cited on tihs post suggests that 2008-09 card statement was provided:

    “Similarly during FY 2008-9, the total billed amount of Petitioner 4 no.2 (Javed Anand) was Rs.3,20,921/-. The amounts reimbursed was Rs.78,463/- (Running Page 1459 of the Gujarat HC Paper Book; Supporting documents at Pages 1460-1482)”

    You are welcome to show me the police affidivat and explain this statement.
