Shock to Mehul Choksi, court adjourns hearing on bail plea till June 11

Fugitive diamond merchant Mehul Choksi’s troubles are not taking the name of lessening. The Dominica High Court has adjourned the hearing on Mehul Choksi’s bail plea till June 11. A bench of High Court Judge Waynette Adrian-Roberts heard the fugitive businessman’s bail plea through video conference. The petition was filed by Choksi’s local legal team. Choksey’s legal team consists of Julian Prevost, Wayne Norde, Wayne Marsh and Cara Shillingford-Marshaw. The government side, represented by Director of Public Prosecution Sherma Dalrymple, strongly objected to Choksi’s plea and said that Choksi could flee the country. After this, the judge adjourned the hearing of the case till June 11. Let us inform that after the bail plea was rejected in the magistrate court, Choksi had approached the High Court. Now after the hearing on the bail plea is adjourned, the fugitive businessman will have to spend a few more days in jail. At the same time, Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerritt said that Mehul Choksi’s rights will be respected and further action will be taken only after the court’s decision. It may be noted that on May 23, Choksi went missing from Antigua and Barbuda under mysterious circumstances and was caught for illegally entering the neighboring country of Dominica.
