Vijay Malia to be sentenced on January 18
Fugitive businessman Vijay Malia’s troubles are about to increase. The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it wanted to continue the contempt of court case against fugitive businessman Vijay Malia. The Supreme Court has fixed January 18, 2022 for sentencing in this case. The Supreme Court said that the contempt of court case against Vijay Malia has to be disposed of at some stage and this process should end soon. According to the judgment delivered on July 14, 2017, Vijay Mallya was found guilty of contempt for non-payment of Rs 9,000 crore dues to banks despite repeated instructions. Thus, Malia’s sentence has been pending for the last four years. The Supreme Court said that it could not wait any longer and in the case in which Vijay Malia has been found guilty, the sentence will be pronounced on January 18, 2022.
The central government, on the other hand, updated the Supreme Court on the issue of his extradition, saying that the matter had reached its final stage, and that the matter was stuck due to some “secret procedure” of the British government. The government has said that all options for Vijay Malia’s appeal in the UK have been exhausted and he will be brought to India soon.
The central government informed the Supreme Court that Malia’s extradition from Britain to India was finalized, but some “secret action” was pending in Britain. The center says Malia has already closed all avenues of appeal in the UK.
