The British government has signed an order to extradite Indian liquor and aviation tycoon Vijay Mallya, the UK’s Home Office said in a statement on Monday.
The order follows a London court’s ruling in December that Mallya, who moved to Britain in March 2016, be extradited to India to face fraud charges.
“After the decision was handed down on December 10, 2018 by the Westminster Magistrates Court, I stated my intention to appeal. I could not initiate the appeal process before a decision by the Home Secretary. Now I will initiate the appeal process,” Mallya tweeted late on Monday.
