Vijay Mallya denied right to Appeal to the UK Supreme court, could be back in India within 28 days.
Liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s application for permission to appeal his extradition to India to the UK Supreme Court was rejected on Thursday, 14 May 2020, leaving the 64-year-old flamboyant buisnessman with just one escape route from incarceration in an Indian jail: the European Court of Human Rights.
Ben Keith comments for the Times of India here, on the prospects of an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights:
His chances of getting interim measures are "moderate", said Ben Keith, an extradition barrister at 5SAH. "It depends on the evidence he has on Indian prison conditions. He could also raise Covid-19," he added. "To issue interim measures, the court will need to be persuaded there is a threat to his life or health if removed to India."
