MEA to approach UK for Lalit Modi’s extradition after ED response

New Delhi,3 June,2016: External Affairs Ministry will approach the UK for extradition of former IPL chairman Lalit Modi, facing money laundering charges, once the Enforcement Directorate investigating the case has responded to certain suggestions made by it in the matter.Last month, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had requested the Ministry of External Affairs to take up with the British authorities the issue of extraditing Modi to India. Following the communication from ED the MEA’s legal team examined the matter.“Keeping in mind the sensitivity of the case, Enforcement Directorate has been requested to intimate their concurrence on the options and suggestions made by the MEA and to advise us how to proceed further in the matter. Now, we are awaiting comments of the Enforcement Directorate,” Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs Vikas Swarup said.He said MEA’s legal experts have vetted the extradition request, adding it would be sent to British authorities after getting ED’s response.The Enforcement Directorate wants Modi to “join investigation” in a case relating to Indian Premier League (IPL) T-20 cricket tournament after an FIR was registered against him and others under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).A special court in Mumbai had two months back issued an order allowing the ED to begin extradition proceedings against Modi in connection with the money laundering case, which also involves some other people.
