Court restricts removal of Choksi from Dominica | India News


NEW DELHI: A court in Dominica has “prevented” authorities from removing fugitive businessman Mehul Choksi from the Caribbean island country until new orders are issued, local media reported.
The order came as a result of a petition filed by lawyers for Choksi, who was detained in Dominica for “illegal entry.”
The Dominican High Court of Justice “prevented” the authorities from “removing” Choksi until new orders were received.
On Thursday, Choksi’s lawyer, Vijay Aggarwal, had raised questions about how he had disappeared from Antigua and Barbuda only to be detained in Dominica, some 100 nautical miles away, for illegal entry.
