The famous Indian tycoon, Vijay Mallya has lost his plea in the UK Supreme Court to appeal against his extradition. He would be sent back to India after a period of 24 days. Mallya is currently facing charges for money laundering in India.
Legal experts think that he could claim COVID-19 and positive cases tested on Arthur Road as an escape route. He could also approach the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) claiming there wasn’t a fair trial. Indian courts would have to convince ECHR that the conditions in Arthur Jail has improved since Mallya had a problem with it prior to this.
