It has also been gathered from a Rangamati based journalist that Moriarty has also told that the US embassy has seriously been perturbed and embarrassed with the opposition given to the IPAC project . An entourage of Moriarty said to a source at Rangamati that the US embassy has finalized all the formalities of a project for the CHT rodent crisis victims. But, it has been suspended because of the fate of the IPAC.
