If the judges — George Leggatt and Andrew Popplewell — turn down Mallya’s appeal, he must be extradited within 28 days from the appeal decision becoming final. However, if he is granted permission to appeal, the case will then proceed to a full hearing stage at the UK High Court.EXPLAINED | The cases against Vijay Mallya“The right to appeal against an extradition order is not straightforward. His defence will have to prove fairly strong grounds to convince the judges to grant an appeal,” PTI quoted Toby Cadman, a UK-based barrister, as saying.There is a final recourse for Mallya to approach the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) based in Strasbourg, France, to argue against his extradition to India on human rights grounds by trying to prove a real threat of harm or torture or that he would not receive a fair trial.Following a year-long extradition trial at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London last December, Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot had found “clear evidence of dispersal and misapplication of the loan funds” and accepted a prima facie case of fraud and a conspiracy to launder money against Mallya.The court had also dismissed any bars to extradition on the grounds of the prison conditions under which the businessman would be held as the judge accepted the Indian government’s assurances that he would receive all necessary medical care at Barrack 12 in Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail.(With PTI inputs) vijay mallya extradition, vijay mallya extradition case, Vijay Mallya leaves a court in London.
