A strange happening is uncovering as the Nigerian Former Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Alison Madueke is suspected to have played the nation and escaped the trial awaiting her at home having been appointed Trade and Investment Commissioner by the Dominican Republic.
The details of the claim are found in a document under the custody of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission thought to have been written and signed by the PM of the Dominican Republic.
The document shared by Pulse reads,
UNTOLD STORY OF DIEZANI’S DESPERATE BID TO ESCAPE TRIAL
Diezani Allison Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum Resources, may well be described as an artful dodger. Before leaving office on May 28, 2015, she had perfected a script with the Office of the Prime Minister, Commonwealth of Dominica. in the script, she lobbied to be appointed as Trade and Investment Commissioner with effect from June 1, 2015.
The lobby actually worked. In a letter dated May 29, 2015 and signed by the Prime Minister Roosevelt Kerry, Diezani was offered not only the citizenship of Dominica, a Caribbean Island, but also an appointment as Trade and Investment Commissioner. A Diplomatic Passport issued on May 21, 2015, with an expiry date of May 20, 2020 came with the appointment.
With the Diplomatic Passport, she is immune to arrest by any law enforcement agency, including the Interpol. The passport contains 32 pages, and in one of the pages, a restraining statement against arrest is made: “The President of the Commonwealth of Dominica requests and requires in the Name of the Government of Dominica all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without hindrance and afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary”. The Diplomatic Passport is DP0000445.
The Former Minister has been thought to be in the UK where she is said to be on treatment for Cancer which obviously, right now is considered to have been fabricated to have given her a strong reason to be away from the country and not face her trial in order to quietly and peacefully run her plan.
Diezani was accused of several corruptible acts stating ownership of luxurious properties in major cities of the country worth Billions of Naira. In the document help by the EFCC, there are 14 count charges bordering on theft and concealment of $153 million.
