Vijay Mallya, Lalit Modi safe in London haven

Mon, May 23, 2016, 05:09 PM
Safe havens are there in British Virgin island, Switzerland and so on. But for Indian money launderers, London itself is safe haven. Both Lalit Modi and Vijay Mallya both have safely landed there.

Modi and Mallya share more than money laundering, Indian Premier League. They are both on the look-out by the Indian enforcement agencies. Both have been allowed to escape to London royally.

Both Modi and Mallya are safe in London for another reason. The British government has already turned down an Indian request to deport Mallya. India has poor success rate in extradition cases.

In 2014, a British court tuned down the extradition order of Ravi Sankaran, accused of leaking Indian war-room secrets to arms dealers. He has since been declared proclaimed offender.

Warren Anderson, CEO of Union Carbide, was responsible for the death of thousands of people in Bhopal owing to the gas tragedy. But he was allowed to flee the country, never to return. Subsequently an extradition plea was made to the US, which turned it down.

If you look at the pattern, after someone is deliberately allowed to flee, then filing of extradition won't have any effect on the foreign country.
