A battery of lawyers representing Indian fraud-accused jeweller Mehul Choksi has been extra busy all week, amid continued efforts by Indian law enforcement to extradite him from Antigua and Barbuda.
One of Choksi’s attorneys, Dr. David Dorsett, told OBSERVER media that he and others representing the billionaire investor are reviewing the case, and should soon be able to respond to recent comments out of India.
He said the lawyers are working in different jurisdictions, including India where the case was filed, and Antigua and Barbuda where the extradition request was made last year.
Choksi, who claims to have a serious medical
condition which makes
it impossible for him to travel the 41-hour journey to his native land, arrived in Antigua shortly before the charges were filed against him.
He is one of the people accused in the multi-million-dollar Punjab National Bank fraud case.
His Indian passport was recently revoked but he retains citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda, which he obtained via the Citizenship by Investment Programme or CIP.
