Antwerp Prosecutor Apologizes for Mistaken Identity Against Rosy Blue

Press Release: The Rosy Blue Business Alliance and its management are shocked by media reports from Belgium on July 10, 2014, claiming that Dilip Mehta was arrested by the authorities in Dubai upon the extradition request from the Belgian judiciary.

These reports have no basis in fact. Neither The Rosy Blue Business Alliance, its management nor 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.

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.

“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," stated Stephanie Chomé of the Office of the Substitute-Prosecutor.
