Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne has said that Punjab National Bank scam accused Mehul Choksi, who has ran away to Antigua, would be deported to India after he exhausts his appeals.
“We are a country of laws, the matter is before the judiciary,” Browne told. “He (Choksi) has several appeals, and until he exhausts his appeals there is nothing we can do,” said the Antigua PM, describing Choksi as a crook.
“He brings no value to Antigua Barbuda,” said the prime minister.He also said that Indian officials are free to investigate him.
Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi, who both left the country a year ago, are key accused in Rs 13,500 crore PNB fraud case.
