Panaji, Oct 29 (TIWN) In a reprieve to former Chief Ministers Digambar Kamat and Churchill Alemao, the Bombay High Court's Goa bench on Wednesday set aside a 2015 Enforcement Directorate order on seizure of their assets in a money laundering case.

Kamat was Chief Minister from 2007-2012 and Alemao served as a Public Works Department Minister in his then Cabinet.  Both are accused of accepting a $976,630 bribe in 2010 from officials of US-based Louis Berger consultancy firm to secure implementation rights of a multi-billion dollar water and sewerage project in Goa worth Rs 1,031 crore funded by the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA).
