Christian Michel’s Extradition Petrified Fugitive Vijay Mallya; Tycoon Urged for Relief

download (4)

In the series of tweets by absconding business tycoon alias the economic defender, Vijay Mallya, it is revealed that VVIP Christian Michel’s extradition has horrified the fugitive money launderer who has been on the run since March 2, 2016, escaping the charges of banking fraud of Rs 9,000 crores.

Mallya in his tweet has implored the Indian banks to accept 100% of the principal loan amount, while denying that the move was linked to the extradition proceedings against him.

AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal middleman Christian Michel’s extradition is the first successful endeavor since the inception of the procedure against economic offenders like Mallya, Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi.

Urging banks to accept his offer, Mallya maintained that the huge loans he took from banks went into keeping his now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines afloat despite high jet fuel prices. Mallya also claimed that his vast liquor empire, the United Breweries, contributed “handsomely” to state exchequers.

“Politicians and Media are constantly talking loudly about my being a defaulter who has run away with PSU Bank money. All this is false. Why don’t I get fair treatment and the same loud noise about my comprehensive settlement offer before the Karnataka High Court. Sad (sic),” he said.

Politicians and Media are constantly talking loudly about my being a defaulter who has run away with PSU Bank money. All this is false. Why don’t I get fair treatment and the same loud noise about my comprehensive settlement offer before the Karnataka High Court. Sad.

As speculation mounted on the timing of Mallya’s tweets following Michel’s extradition, the liquor baron said, “I see the quick media narrative about my extradition decision. That is separate and will take its own legal course…”

Mallya is currently in London where a court finished hearing on India’s extradition case against him in September this year and is due to pronounce its verdict on December 10.
