No objection to Choksi’s deportation to India, Dominica govt says in court – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The Dominican government on Wednesday said that it has no objection in deporting Mehul Choksi to India.
The Dominican high court has adjourned the hearing in the case till tomorrow.
A battery of lawyers from both the sides were present in the hearing of the case.
Mehul Choksi did not turned up at court for the hearing. He attended via a video call from a hospital bed in Dominica China Friendship Hospital.
Choksi was detained in Dominica for illegal entry after his mysterious disappearance from neighbouring Caribbean country Antigua and Barbuda where he was staying since 2018 after fleeing from India in January that year. Within days, the scam came to light.
The fugitive diamantaire had taken the citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda in 2017 using its Citizenship by Investment program.
Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi are wanted for allegedly siphoning Rs 13,500 crore of public money from the state-run Punjab National Bank (PNB) using letters of undertaking. Both are facing a CBI and ED probe.
While Modi is in a London prison after being repeatedly denied bail and is contesting his extradition to India, Choksi took citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda in 2017 before fleeing India in the first week of January 2018. The scam came to light subsequently.
