UK Court Hearing on Mallya Extradition

London's Westminster Magistrates' court will pronounce the verdict in fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya's extradition case on 10 December, reported agencies.

On Wednesday, 12 September, Mallya reached the UK court where the matter was being heard. Speaking to the media, Mallya claimed, "I met the finance minister before I left and repeated the offer to pay the banks." He has also alleged that banks objected to the settlement application filed by him.

When asked if he has convinced the court that he has the means to repay the banks, he said, "Obviously, that is why a settlement offer has been made."

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley took to Facebook soon after Mallya claimed that he had met Jaitley before leaving India.

Jaitley said, "The statement is factually false in as much as it does not reflect truth. Since 2014, I have never given him any appointment to meet me and the question of his having met me does not arise. "

However, Jaitley added that Mallya did once misuse his privilege (of being an MP) and caught up with him while he was walking out of the House to his chamber.
