'I'm innocent, do not have any criminal background'; Swapna Suresh moves High Court

swapna

KOCHI: Swapna Suresh, the key accused in the diplomatic baggage gold smuggling case, has informed the High Court that she is innocent and does not have any criminal background. Swapna made the claims while filing an anticipatory bail plea via online. The court will later decide on the date to consider the plea.

According to her, she is being unnecessarily targetted by the media and she does not have anything to reveal to the investigating officials. She claimed that the officials of the consulate had made use of her service for free even after she stepped down from the consulate. She further added she had enquired about the cargo to the customs officials after the acting Chargé d'affaires at the UAE Consulate Rashid Khamis asked her to check why a cargo sent to him was being delayed.

While stating that she was just a contract employee under PricewaterhouseCoopers, Swapna also rubbished the reports which claim that she has connections with the Chief Minister's office. She also informed the court that she is ready to cooperate with the investigation and added that the Customs department is accusing her on the basis of certain media reports.
