London court to decide on Vijay Mallya's extradition case today: 5 points

UK Court Order Vijay Mallya extradition

UK Court Order Vijay Mallya extradition

Following the Chief Magistrate's verdict, the UK Home Office for the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, will announce the final order.

Mallya has the option of going to a higher court. The Arthur Road jail, Mumbai's largest and oldest prison - where the liquor tycoon will be kept - has made all arrangements and prepped a high security cell for Vijay Mallya if he returns to India, an official said. It is not related to this extradition trial. "I won't disrespect the court by making a bogus offer".

"I have offered to repay 100 per cent of the principal amount to them. This has nothing to do with the judgement", Mallya said, adding that he wants to "change the narrative" that he had stolen the money.

Earlier, Vijay Mallya had issued an apology and offered to repay all the money and loan which he had borrowed to the Indian banks, wherein he had tweeted, "I did not borrow a single rupee". Yes I have tweeted saying I want to pay, including PSBs and employees. Wherever I am physically, my appeal is "Please take the money".

Judge Emma Arbuthnot ruled against Mallya at the hearing in London on Monday.

The trial, which opened at the Magistrates' Court on December 4 previous year, has gone through a series of hearings beyond the initial seven days earmarked for it. The Chief Magistrate found prima facie a case against Vijay Mallya for fraud, conspiracy and money laundering. Summers sought to establish a "blueprint of dishonesty" against the businessman and that there are no bars to his extradition on human rights grounds. Kingfisher Airlines also contributed handsomely to the States.

"There are clear signs that the banks seem to have gone against their own guidelines [in sanctioning some of the loans]", Judge Arbuthnot had noted during the course of the trial. Now the matter of extradition of Vijay Mallya has been referred to the Secretary of State in United Kingdom.

The trial, which opened at the Magistrates' Court on December 4 past year, has gone through a series of hearings beyond the initial seven days earmarked for it. If the verdict goes in favour of the liquor baron and against India, the CBI and the ED would get 14 days to file an appeal in a higher court.

- When asked if the recent extradition of AgustaWestland middleman Christian Michel had him anxious, Mallya said that his and Michel's case were different and he had not known about Michel's extradition at the time of making a settlement offer.
