'Good news...should have come long ago', says Quattrochi

Italian businessman Ottavio Quattrochi's first reactio to the news about Indian government withdrawing Bofors case against him was:

" You bring me good news. To tell you the truth, I was not even aware that there was a pending matter in the Supreme Court.” 

Quattrocchi spoke to Indian Express over phone from Milan: “After the removal of the Red Corner Notice, I have been travelling all over the world for business and have forgotten that anything remains in India. For me, it ended with my victory in the Argentina court (2007) and it does not bother me any more.”

“I am no longer troubled with the case. Now that you tell me the highest court has been informed about the file being closed, it is a happy development. The announcement should have come long ago.”

Asked whether he  had plans to visit and pursue business interests in India, Quattrochi said,  “I would love to visit India since my family and I have spent some of the best years of our lives in the country. But no visit is planned in the near future though many of my Indian friends visit me in Milan. I am very busy these days with my real estate business.”
