VVIP choppers case: Dubai court orders Christian Michel's extradition

In a big boost for India’s investigative agencies, a Dubai court has rejected the final appeal against extradition by alleged middleman Christian Michel who is suspected to be central to political payoffs in the $556-million Agusta-Westland VVIP chopper case. 

According to sources, the middleman, who has had a long history in India since 1990s, could be extradited within a ‘matter of days’. The final orders have yet to be issued by the UAE government after the courts rejected all appeals. 

Michel, who is a British citizen, is currently in prison and his travel documents have been seized pending his transfer. The extradition plea had been filed by India through an Interpol notice after investigations here pointed to his key involvement in routing payments to officials and politicians for the VVIP chopper deal. The key middleman is believed to have been paid $48.6 million by the Italian company for contracts in India.
