Mallya denies ‘all allegations’


Force India co-owner Vijay Mallya insists he has “enough evidence” to prove his innocence but his lawyer has revealed that he could yet face further charges.

Mallya appeared in a London court on Tuesday over an extradition request from India, where he is wanted over fraud changes relating to the now defunct Kingfisher Airline.

“I deny all allegations that have been made and I will continue to deny them,” he told reporters as he arrived at the court.

“I have not eluded any court. If it is my lawful duty to be here, I’m happy to be here.

“I’ve given enough evidence to prove my case.”

Aaron Watkins, representing the Indian government, stated that prosecutors are still waiting for all the documents and evidence from India while Mallya’s lawyer, Ben Watson, told the court that his client could face a second extradition request based on a “separate set of charges.”

Mallya’s next hearing will take place on July 6 with the full extradition hearing scheduled for December 4.
