CHOKSI SURRENDERS HIS INDIAN PASSPORT, WHILE HIS EXTRADITION CASE IN ANTIGUA IS DELAYED INDEFINITELY BY THE GOVERNMENT


 The extradition of the fugitive Indian billion dollar fraudster Mehul Choksi remains in legal limbo, indefinitely delayed by an Antiguan government who prefers that their CBI "citizen" remain in the country, free to spend his illicit wealth there. The government-influenced legal system has, like it has successfully done with Leroy King, thrown dilatory legal roadblocks down, resulting in zero forward movement in the extradition process. Even the issuance of an INTERPOL Red Notice has failed to have any effect upon an infinite "review" of the Choksi case, now pending for more than one half of a year.

Choksi's attorneys have surrendered his Indian passport at the office of the Indian High Commissioner in Guyana. It was revoked when Choksi purchased his CBI passport in Antigua, as Indian law prohibits dual citizenship, and mandates loss of an Indian passport when a second nationality is acquired or secured.

It is now believed that the extradition case against Choksi, moving at a glacial pace, will never result in his return to face justice in India, due to the systemic corruption that infects the Antiguan judicial system. Just as Leroy King will probably never come before an American judge, to face corruption charges in the Stanford case, Choksi will not be seen inside an Indian courtroom, so long as he has the wealth to purchase his continued residence in Antigua, and foreign investors are avoiding Antigua due to the scandal over the corrupt court system.
