Vijay Mallya Extradition Case:  UK Court To Pronounce Verdict  On Dec 10

London: A UK court has fixed 10th December as the date to deliver its verdict on whether beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya can be extradited to India in a 9,000 crore rupee bank fraud and money laundering case.

Marking the conclusion of the trial, Westminster Magistrates’ Court Judge Emma Arbuthnot said, the most important point is the prima facie case, indicating that other issues relating to prison conditions would be secondary.

The Judge heard the closing arguments in the extradition proceedings as well as reviewed the prison cell which has been prepared for Mallya in Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail.

The day-long hearing also heard the closing submissions by the Crown Prosecution Service arguing on behalf of the Indian government, which focused on highlighting that the judge should rule in favour of extradition based on the weight of the evidence.

Mallya, who arrived in London in March 2016 and was arrested in April 2017, was present in court as his legal team and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), acting on India’s behalf, reiterated and substantiated points made at earlier hearings on loans from IDBI Bank.

Mallya’s bail was also extended till December 10.
