UK court said that appeals filed by liquor businessman Vijay Mallya to the UK High Court against the extradition order have been listed for hearing for three days from February 11 next year. An official of the UK High Court said that the appeal has been listed for the hearing on February 11, 2020.
During the hearing on July 2, Judge George Leggett and Andrew Popelwell said that the arguments on some aspects of the case presented by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on behalf of the Government of India can be reasonably placed. On the basis of which the Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot, on December 2018, the order passed on the extradition order will be fully heard in the High Court. UK Home Minister Sajid Javid also signed on this order.Judge Leggatt said in his order that the most solid basis so far is that the senior district judge was wrong in reaching the conclusion that the government has made the first case.
Mallya's lawyer Claire Montgomery gave a tremendous challenge to reaching a specific conclusion of Judge Arbuthnton. Mallya is desirous of charges of fraud and money laundering of 9,000 crore rupees with Indian banks. Mallya had said before that I still want that the bank should take her full money, whatever she wants to do, let me be in peace.
