UK High Court To Hear Vijay Mallya’s Extradition Appeal In February 2020

Embattled liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya’s appeal in the UK High Court against his extradition order has been listed for a three-day hearing from February 11 next year, the UK court said on Thursday.

The 63-year-old former Kingfisher Airlines boss had won a reprieve earlier this month when a two-judge panel at the Royal Courts of Justice in London granted him permission to appeal against the extradition order of a lower court to face fraud and money laundering charges amounting to an alleged Rs. 9,000 crores in India.

“The appeal hearing has been listed on 11 February 2020 with a time estimate of three days,” a UK High Court official said.
