THE AGA Khan has directly accused his former stud manager in Ireland of perpetrating a "massive fraud" against him.

The Aga made the allegations against Ghislain Drion in a sworn affidavit read out yesterday in Dublin's High Court during the latest stage of the action brought against him by Mary Charlton, a secretary at the Aga's Irish studs for 27 years.

The affidavit was sworn by the Aga as the sole director of his bloodstock holding company, the Studs Societe Civile, which is being sued by Charlton.

Aga Khan Lawsuit: Fraud at Aga Khan Studs - 2000-02-22

Action brought by Mary Charlton - a secretary at the Aga's Irish studs for 27 years - against his bloodstock holding company, the Studs Societe Civile.

But it turns out that the Aga Khan had no hand in mistreating the Plaintiff:

The Aga also appeared to deny having ordered Charlton to be fired because Carnegie continued: "His Highness further instructs me that he did not issue instructions to either Richard Coulton, Frank Faughan or myself or any other person, to take any steps in relation to the termination, or alteration of the terms of, Mrs Charlton's employment."
