British court rejects Mallya’s plea against extradition

Now that Judge Davis has dismissed the plea of Vijay Mallya, the fugitive financial offender has the option of 'renewal' of his application

London: The troubles of fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya, who has been trying to escape from the hold of Indian officials, have just increased. The UK High Court on Monday refused to approve his appeal against the order of the British Government to extradite Mallya to India for legal action against him.

Mallya is accused of fraud and money laundering of Rs 9,000 crore in India.

The 63-year-old businessman had applied to the High Court against the order after UK Home Minister Sajid Javed signed the order to extradite Mallya to India in February at the Westminster Magistrate’s Court.

A UK judiciary spokesman said, “The application for permission to appeal was refused by Mr Justice William Davis on 05/04/2019.”

“The appellant (Mallya) has five business days to apply for oral consideration. If a renewal application is made, it will be listed before a High Court judge and dealt with at a hearing,” the spokesperson said.

The application seeking “leave to appeal” had been passed on to a single judge, who was to make a decision on the basis of papers submitted as part of the application. The application was presented before a single-judge bench. The judge had to decide on the basis of the documents given to him. Judge Davis dismissed the application of the liquor baron after studying the document.

Now that the “judge on papers” application has been rejected by Judge Davis, Mallya has the option of renewing the application.

In this updated procedure, the court will conduct oral hearings. The team of advocates of Mallya and the Crown Prosecution Service on behalf of the government of India argue the case.

Mallya has been in London since March 2016. He is currently on bail even as an extradition warrant has been issued against him.
