    Do not forget the JCP tactics in the past. Threatening and using whatever means to get power.

    I thought the e-mail was sent by the Minister acknowledging the deposit..! That would be a "solid evidence". But considering as evidence an e-mail sent by anybody to that Minister saying the money is deposited as the commission may become a farce...!! Find right and tenable evidence without reducing all these allegations to a joke eventually. Nomatata
