Westminster Magistrates’ Court has scheduled the judgment in the Vijay Mallya extradition case for the 11th July 2018. Mr Mallya is hoping to convince the court that he faces political persecution, an unfair trial and breaches of his human rights if he is returned to India to face numerous money laundering and financial crime charges If it is decided that Mr Mallya should be extradited to India, then this will be the first successful contested extradition from the UK to India since both states signed an extradition treaty in 1992. Depending on the decision, either the CPS, on behalf of the Indian Government, or Mr Mallya will have the chance to appeal to the High Court.
