Mallya Extradition Case: Congress All Guns Blazing Against Jaitley

Arun Jaitley was the Finance Minister in 2016 when Mallya left India Arun Jaitley was the Finance Minister in 2016 when Mallya left India

On the last day of Vijay Mallya's extradition trial at Westminster Magistrate court in London, when it was expected that the court argument would revolve around the state of Arthur Road prison in Mumbai, where the flamboyant industrialist is expected to be lodged if extradited, Mallya turned the narrative by claiming that he had met finance minister Arun Jaitley before he left India.

Mallya told media outside of court that he had met Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to settle matters before he left the country. So, when finance minister gave statements in Parliament on Vijay Mallya issue, he should have mentioned about this meeting with Mallya.

After Congress latched onto Vijay Mallya "meeting" Arun Jaitley, the BJP hit back by accusing Rahul Gandhi of "using black money".

The ruling on whether Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya can be extradited from Britain to India to face fraud charges will be given on December 10, a London judge said on Wednesday, after she heard closing submissions in the case. "Since 2014, I have never given him any appointment to meet me and the question of his having met me does not arise".

Jaitley said Mallya "misused" the privilege of being a Rajya Sabha MP to catch him in corridors of Parliament.

"I had a scheduled meeting in Geneva".




One can forget about Mallya's talk with Jaitley about the settlement part, this was anyway not acceptable for banks since Mallya was offering much less than what the banks claimed he owed them.

"Full and complete and accurate information was provided and I can demonstrate that", Montgomery said, saying suggestions that there was a "secret package of knowledge" about Kingfisher's financial position which was not provided to IDBI were "utterly unfounded". "That is the truth", he told reporters outside a London court hearing a case for his extradition.

"On March 3, we heard from the media that he (Mr. Mallya) fled the country on March 2". Mark Summers, representing India, said that there was a clear case against Mallya and that what Kingfisher "internally knew was radically different" to what was being told to banks regarding the company's status. "The banks had filed objections to my settlement letters", he had said.

"I did not even receive the papers he was holding in his hand", Jaitley said.

"I put nearly Rs 15,000 crore offer on the table of the Karnataka High Court".

"Either your passport is impounded or there is an order of a court". He has been engaged in a legal battle over his extradition to India on charges of banking fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs 9,000 crore. "The notice issued for Vijay Mallya was changed to the inform notice".
