PANJIM: Two days after Congress accused a “non-Goan businessman” of harassing former minister Francisco Monte Cruz, he has denied the allegations.

The businessman has said that he is rightful possession of the Impala Distillery factory for which he has entered into a lease agreement.

“We (Viiking Beverages Pvt Ltd – VBPL) have entered into a lease agreement with Impala Distillery & Brewery Ltd (IDBL) since 2012 which is valid and subsisting,” Nikash Ahuja, director, Viking Ventures Private Limited, has said in a statement issued here.

“Hence, we are rightfully and lawfully in possession of the factory. Mr Vijay Montecruz was appointed as our contractor to manufacture our Goa Kings beer and our other brands of alcohol,” he added.

“We have provided him the required fees as billed and as and when demanded by him. We have also advanced him money at regular intervals. When we asked him to share details on utilization of this money, he has created this farce, to hide that he has misused our money,” the statement adds.

“Due to all these, we have taken normal legal recourse and have not involved any politician or created any pressure,” Ahuja said.

“There are proper legal recourses which he can take but since, Mr Monte Cruz has failed in establishing his side legally; he is using media to divert the issue,” he alleged.

He said that Viiking Beverages wants to continue doing business as per legal terms and create and continue to add value to the local economy and employment and take brand to the global level.
