EU court Fails Sanjeev Chawla Bidding to block extradition

Last updated on February 6, 2020

The European Court of Human Rights on Thursday refused supposed cricket bookie Sanjeev Chawla’s application for an interim step to block his extradition to India, which was cleared by UK courts as well as the home secretary.

Chawla, who tired legal choices in the united kingdom, had approached the ECHR looking for the step in front of a complete hearing of his situation. He’d said the alleged threat to his rights if delivered to India.

An ECHR spokesperson said on Thursday: “In connection with Mr. Sanjeev Chawla interim measure petition, we are now able to affirm that his request was denied by the Court”.

The denial makes it increasingly probable that Chawla is now taken to India by a group of the Delhi authorities later this month to be lodged in Tihar Jail and confront charges of match-fixing during South Africa’s cricket tour of India in 2000.

Chawla faces extradition over 28 days of their conclusion of the high court of England and Wales that denied him permission to appeal against extradition on January 23.

He’s exhausted his right to appeal. After the last orders from the courtroom have been obtained, arrangements will be created for his extradition to occur within 28 days”

At the united kingdom high court, Chawla’s team sought to adduce new evidence in the united kingdom court: yet, a newspaper article suggesting that the Indian government meant to demolish jails one, three and two in Tihar and construct a prison; 2, paper reports on prison conditions.

Paradoxically, his attorneys cited a record of March 30, 2019, explained as a professional legal opinion, by a single Gupta who was a legal advisor for the Officer of the Director-General, Delhi Jails before his retirement in 2017.

The fourth was a record bearing dates from April 2000 which is a program by one of Chawla’s co-accused into the Magistrates’ Court in Delhi for instructions to the authorities about the behavior of this analysis.

India-born Chawla transferred into the United Kingdom in 1996.

A petition that Chawla is extradited was created by the Indian authorities on February 1, 2016, and it accredited by the House secretary March 11, 2016, the ruling mentioned.
