Mehul got bail "strictly for medical treatment" by Dominica's court

On Monday, Dominican court granted bail to the clever fugitive Mehul Choksi for his travel to Antigua and Barbuda. The travel has been “strictly for medical treatment”. This was written by the Dominican court.

One of the lawyers in the court, when asked about Mehuls bail, said that bail had been granted to Mehul with the condition that he will have to return to Dominica, where he has been facing various charges regarding illegal entry in the country.
The Dominican Court asked Mehul to deposit EC$10,000 as a surety for the bail. Mehul’s lawyer’s team approached the Dominica high court past week asking relief on the ground that his health has been worsening and he needed urgent medical attention.

 

Choksi’s lawyer Vijay Aggarwal said on Monday that Dominica courts finally upheld the rule of law and rights of a human to be treated in the medical facilities of his choice. And all attempts by various agencies do not have fruits. There has been a solace in saying that all clever foxes end up as fur coats. The proceedings against him have been adjourned in the illegal entry case filed by Dominica police.

Choksi also approached the high court last week seeking a judicial review of the criminal case against him, alleging that he had been kidnapped from Antigua and Barbuda and took to Dominica to collaborate between the two island nations, the Indian government.

Fraudster Mehul Choksi committed fraud with the second-largest public lender Punjab National Bank of the amount of US$2 billion. “Red Corner” notice has been issued with his name by the International Police, and Mehul has been wanted in India by renowned Indian investigative agencies like CBI and many more.

The Criminal Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had also declared that Mehul Choksi is a clever mind as he left the country to escape from the enquiries and other legal punishments for doing fraud.

The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, also declared that he wants Choksi to be repatriated back to India. He also called him a “liability” after he was caught in Dominica.

During the session of the house of representatives of Antigua and Barbuda, Prime Minister Gaston Browne stated that no conclusive evidence had been found regarding the Indian fugitive Mehul Choksi’s alleged abduction from Jolly Harbour on May 23, 2021.

The Indian government has sought his deportation directly from Dominica as he is an illegal citizen there, while in Antigua, he enjoys constitutional and legal protection.

Mehul Choksi was fighting two cases in Antigua and Barbuda court, one concerning his citizenship and the second about his extradition to India. The hearing of his extradition case was expected to be in November 2021, but before that, he tried to escape from Antigua and Barbuda on May 23 2021
