"I spoke to him this morning. He called me and told me that he will going to India. He told me not to worry. I hope he will be okay there. I hope they will take care of him there. I hope they don't give him drugs to say what he doesn't want to say. I wish everything will be fine for him," said Rosemary Patrizi.
She went onto claim that Michel's innocence in the AgustaWestland scam case stating that he is being targeted for elections in India.

I believe he is innocent and there is no bribery. I believe they are using him to win the elections. I hope Mr Modi doesn't need this to win the elections. I hope he will have a good time in India. I hope he will be free to say what he has to say, that he is innocent and there is no bribery. Even our court here finds that," Patrizi added.
