Well i have a different theory I think this guy might not have fudged the books, he simply siphoned off all this money showed it as inflated books, bribed the right guys and ran off.
Why nobody is thinking in this direction?
May be the 'holier than thou' confession was to mislead everyone...

Is this going to be another 1st on team-bhp?

But I don't think he would have run away. It must be another sensationalization media thought frenzy...

1) Dubai

Also his letter to SEBI was sent when he was already out of the country.
From what Raju's advocate has informed to NDTV and also from the Press Meet, Mr. Raju is still in Hyderabad and has never gone out of city and was willing to cooperate.

Was reading the following in the link below

Satyam addresses media: liquidity a concern- Software-Infotech-The Economic Times

However, he also confessed that while the December salaries of the employees have been taken care of, the company is faced with immediate liquidity problem and is looking at raising liquidity from the market

Pray things will turn out well for satyam employees, My heart goes for them. Does it mean the future salaries are in doubt. It sucks big time.

Listening to the session, the new board is giving a "Ooops, was it so bad! We never knew!" on

Have no idea what the new head Ram meant by "We went by the auditors data"!!! And he being the VP of International Business, he says he had no clue! And he had no answer as to why the board ok'd the Maytas buy without looking at the books, again, no answer!

Seems to be a total goof up!!!!

EDIT: Satyam say that they went by the auditors statements and PWC say that they made the statement based on the data they were provided! Talk about passing the buck, this is a 7,000 Crore buck!

Wonderful writeup truedreamer but here situation is diffrent,he cheated investors,board,govt,banks list is long.
Let me give you a straight example We go wild when a petrol pump guy fill less fuel in our tank and do lot of halla gulla then why have a soft corner for this guy?He has commited a bigger offence than this poor chap i.e guy at petrol pump.Just imagine if you have few hundred shares of Satyam in your demat account bought at higher price,I or you may never able to understand pain of those who bought satyam and invested their hard money in it.

Mr. Raju had just 8% stake in SATYAM which has actually turned out to 5.15% as per Economic Times article after pledging of shares and others. So no one can believe he would be foolish to fix the books to gain very small (5.13%) of the company profits.

The Satyam press conf today was a hogwash!

The Senior Mgmt was pretending they knew nothing of this 7000 Cr fraud, as if it was only Mr.Raju & his brother who commited this fraud & they were only aware of it.
Then what these guys were doing in the Board holding Executive positions?
Also most of their answers to the questions posed by media were not convincing with indirect replies.

Only Ram is from the board and the rest are not part of the Satyam board, they are just part of the team trying to sort out this situation and bring some hope.

I spoke to a friend of mine who is a CA and works for an auditing firm. He was telling me that when doing audits they dont really have access to all the data, and in a lot of cases they are dependent on the data which are provided to them by the company. Its usually a case of trust which is relied upon, except when some doubt arises.

Isn't this Ram Mynampati the same guy who was involved in the World Bank scandal and tried to dilute it with false information?

I agree but is hanging Mr Raju the solution ? Also even sending him to jail would be worthless unless the regulators and law wants to set this as an example as this is not going to make any big difference to the investors who lost their hard earned money. They should now look in how to get the operations going on so that the customers do not cancel the contracts and move away. From the press meeting, they say the customers are very much still with them and they should now try to focus on that and try to stop the value of the share from further going down on Friday and save the employees.

Just heard that an arrest warrant has been issued against Mr. Raju by the centre.
