UK court rejects Vijay Mallya’s request to appeal against extradition order

London: In another legal win for India, a judge in the appeals court of the high court has rejected controversial businessman Vijay Mallya’s application for permission to appeal against home secretary Sajid Javid’s February 4 order to extradite him to India.
Mallya had applied to the court on February 14 and the Home Office submitted its response within the stipulated 20 days. Legal experts say the case is usually allowed to go for a full appeals hearing if new grounds or evidence not previously considered in lower courts are cited.
A spokesman for the judiciary said on April 8: “The application for permission to appeal was refused by Mr Justice William Davis on April 5. The appellant has 5 business days to apply for oral consideration”.
“If a renewal application is made, it will be listed before a High Court judge and dealt with at a hearing”, he added.
