Rosy Blue 'Shocked' By Belgian Reports About CEO Dilip MehtaJuly 10, 14
"These reports have no basis in fact. Neither The Rosy Blue Business Alliance, its management nor Dilip Mehta is involved in the case.
"The Belgian prosecutor’s office that was cited as a source in the reports has, in the meantime, confirmed that there was a regrettable case of mistaken identity, (see below copy of the communiqué from the prosecutor’s office translated into English.
"The Rosy Blue Business Alliance regrets the appalling carelessness exhibited in the reports and requests the media to remove the false online media coverage, to not further circulate these false reports and to publish a retraction in the print media involved.
The Belgian prosecutor’s office said: “With reference to the articles in the Gazet van Antwerpen and De Standaard today, regarding the arrest abroad of a suspect in a diamond fraud case, the Antwerp Prosecutor’s office confirmed the report of an arrest made yesterday of a Dilip M on June 18, 2014, in the United Arab Emirates.
"However, this suspect is NOT Dilip Mehta of Rosy Blue Group. Furthermore, the Antwerp Prosecutor’s office has never confirmed or posited that Dilip Mehta of Rosy Blue Group is involved in the ongoing diamond fraud case for which a suspect is now in custody. The present case of mistaken identity is very regrettable," said Stephanie Chomé, Press Spokesman at the Office of the Substitute-Prosecutor.
