Goa: Let brothers settle the matter amicably: Suella Braverman’s mom to CM Pramod Sawant | Goa News


PANAJI: In a new twist to the ‘land grab’ concerning UK home secretary Suella Braverman‘s ancestral property, her mother Uma Fernandes on Tuesday wrote to the state government requesting it to allow her husband Christie Fernandes and his brother Fr Ayres Fernandes to settle the matter amicably.
Her letter comes days after the SIT probing the Goa land scam registered an FIR in the case based on a complaint by Christie himself, who alleged that the ancestral land had been grabbed.
In her letter to CM Pramod Sawant, director general of police (DGP) Jaspal Singh and the NRI commissioner, Uma wrote, “I am Uma, the wife of Christo (Christie)… I am a named legal signatory who has given the power of attorney to my brother-in-law Fr Ayres Fernandes through the UK embassy, certified by the Goa deputy collector in 1991.
After the completion of the inventory of the properties, the appropriate share (was) given to Fr Ayres Fernandes, Christo Fernandes, Melba Fernandes, and Yolanda Fernandes.”
Uma said that the sale deed was executed by Ayres with R9 Ventures for property bearing survey no 252/3 dated February 20, 2018, and 253/3 dated January 18, 2019, of Assagao, and the payment was made to Ayres and family by cheque.
After three months of the execution of the sale deed, my husband Christo revoked the power of attorney to Ayres following some private internal fraternal dispute. However, I remain the named signatory of the power of attorney to Ayres,” Uma said. The case came to light earlier this month, after the SIT registered the FIR following Christie’s claim.
In his July 27 letter, he wrote that “an inventory case was filed without my knowledge, and I was represented in the said case by someone who claimed to be my power of attorney”. However, days after the FIR was filed, TOI reported that the land in question was sold by Ayres after Christie gave him the power of attorney. But after the sale deed was executed, Christie revoked the power of attorney through a public notice, and later filed the suit at a local court in Mapusa.
Uma, in her letter on Tuesday, said that proceedings in this case have been on since 2019. “We are very happy and have full faith in the Mapusa D-court proceedings, and we want it to continue without any further input from the NRI commission or sensational media coverage from now on,” she wrote. “Thank you for your understanding in this very personal fraternal matter, and allow the two brothers to settle their misunderstanding amicably.”
