Embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s extradition to India is unlikely to happen soon. According to a news agency report, the UK government has said that there is a legal issue that needs to be resolved before his extradition can be arranged.
Last month, Mallya lost his appeals in the UK Supreme Court against his extradition to India to face money laundering and fraud charges.
A spokesperson in the UK high commission said the issue is “confidential” and added: “We cannot estimate how long this issue will take to resolve.”
Mallya has been based in the UK since March 2016 and remains on bail on an extradition warrant executed three years ago by Scotland Yard on April 18, 2017.
Vijay Mallya had repeatedly in numerous tweets offered to to pay 100 percent payback to the due banks and close the case
Congratulations to the Government for a Covid 19 relief package. They can print as much currency as they want BUT should a small contributor like me who offers 100% payback of State owned Bank loans be constantly ignored ? Please take my money unconditionally and close.
