India's infamous Punjab National Bank fraudster, Mehul Choksi, artfully evading justice since last August by virtue of his trusty Antigua CBI passport, has delivered an additional insult to the Government of India. According to media reports, on March 7, 2019, he formed a new corporation in the United Kingdom. Apparently he feels safe enough, protected from extradition by Antigua's corrupt judicial system, which allows fugitives from justice to file successive actions, appeals, applications, and requests for reconsideration of prior rulings, to hide from the consequences of his criminal actions, indefinitely.
Foreign investors, with an eye upon the dysfunctional court system, have avoided Antigua of late. Only the Peoples' Republic of China remains a committed investor, but given China's history of using their creditor status to influence foreign policy of those countries who foolishly let them in, perhaps Antiguans had better start learning Mandarin. The Choksi and Leroy King extradition cases have done substantial damage to Antigua's image overseas.
Whether the arrogance he demonstrates in starting a new business, which reportedly has a Dubai, UAE headquarters, will result in his acquiring Persona Non Grata status in Antigua, earlier rather than later, is not known, but with the increased pressure being placed against India's government to return Choksi for trial, this may have just been sufficient to, at long last, sufficiently embarrass Antigua into kicking Choksi to the curb.
The use of widespread use of CBI passports by white-collar criminls was the principal reason that the European Union has called those members who operate CBI programs to cancel them.
