Nassau, Bahamas — We here at Bahamas Press want to know who is paying the legal fees of Deepak Bhatnagar, the financial advisor to the Board at the Airport Authority.
He was charged with assaulting an employee of The Airport Authority. Bhatnagar was served with a criminal summons on July 5th, 2012 ordering him to appear before a magistrate to answer to a charge of assault.
We ask this question as we saw a senior manager of the Airport Authority, in attendance of the matter and the fact that Bhatnagar was represented by the Law firm of Cash Fountain and Co.
We are advised that the firm of Cash Fountain are the Attorneys for the Airport Authority.
Who is paying his fees?
We want the Chairman or the Minister to answer the public.
Deepak Bahtnagar was once referred to as “a nasty little Indian man” by Vangy Ford when giving testimony at the Commission of Inquiry into matters related to the Hotel Corporation.
Deepak Bhatnagar came to the Bahamas in early 1980 as an accountant at the NIB Board.
He has always in our view had a nasty streak in him. He ingratiated himself with Pindling and successive governments. He now, we are told has citizenship.
We say here and now, if the Airport Authority is paying his legal fees it should cease and desist. He cannot continue to be a leech on the taxpayers of this Country. The young lady that he was alleged to have slapped over a parking space has rights too. And she is a Bahamian!
It is time for this “nasty little Indian man” to go.
