Fugitive businessman arrives in United Kingdom court; verdict expected soon

Vijay Mallya has said that he fears politically motivated lack of a fair trial while the CBI joint director S Sai Manohar is attending the hearing on Mallya extradition case in UK.

Explaining the proceedings, the CBI official said that they had built a watertight case and it was on this basis that the order of extradition was passed.

Mallya, chairman of the UB Group drinks conglomerate and chief executive of the Force India Formula One team, will discover his fate at Westminster Magistrates' Court. This could lead to an extension of time for the Secretary to make a decision.

The refurbishing of the cell came in the wake of Mallya putting up a defence in the London court in which he had said that the extradition needs to be blocked as the conductions in the jails are bad.

Mallya said in July that he had made an "unconditional offer" to an Indian court in a bid to settle the charges, but denies that was an admission of guilt.

Recently, the Supreme Court issued notice in a petition filed by Mallya challenging the Enforcement Directorate's move to declare Mallya as a Fugitive Economic Offender under the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act, 2018.

Earlier, the agency's Special Director Rakesh Asthana led the team which had been working on the case in coordination with the British Crown Prosecution since December past year.

Summers sought to establish a "blueprint of dishonesty" against the businessman and that there are no bars to his extradition on human rights grounds.

Hailing the United Kingdom court order on Vijay Mallya's extradition, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said the offender who benefited during the UPA rule is being brought to the book by the NDA government. And how long will it take before he is brought back to India?

The lawyer for the Indian government told the AFP news agency that the focus of their case was on his conduct and how he allegedly misused banks. Further it was said that Mallya had deliberately not repaid the amount, outstanding dues payable by Kingfisher Airlines to the consortium of banks. Nobody disrespects a court of law by making a bogus offer.
