AgustaWestland Chopper Deal: Dubai Court orders Extradition of middleman-Christian Michel

September 19, 2018

The AgustaWestland case involves a 2007 contract signed by the government for the purchase of 12 luxury helicopters for use by top leaders, including the President, Prime Minister and former prime ministers.

Michel, a British national, is wanted in India for allegedly organising bribes in exchange for a 2007 contract for VVIP helicopters.

A Court in Dubai has ruled, Christian Michel, the British middleman in the AgustaWestland chopper scandal, will be extradited. Mr Michel was arrested in the UAE last year and was facing extradition proceedings in the country.

He is wanted in India for allegedly organising bribes in exchange for a contract for VVIP helicopters. He was detailed in UAE this June and granted bail the following month.

Michel was arrested in February 2017 by the UAE authorities & since then, extradition proceedings have been going on. He’s currently out on bail there.

In September 2017, the CBI had filed a charge sheeted against former Airchief SP Tyagi & 8 others – former Air Force vice-chief JS Gujral, Infotech legal advisor Gautam Khaitan, Tyagi’s cousin Sanjeev alias Julie, former AgustaWestland chief executive officer Bruno Spagnolini, former Finmeccanica chairman Giuseppe Orsi & alleged middlemen Carlo Gerosa, Guido Haschke & Christian Michel – in the case.

CBI( Central Bureau of Investigation) & ED (Enforcement Directorate ) teams visited UAE a couple of times in the last one year to share documents, including chargesheet, witness statements & other evidence, with the UAE authorities & the Court.

The CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation), however, refuted the allegation & said its team hadn’t examined him in the UAE at all.

On Tuesday, the CBI, which is investigating the case, said it was yet receive an official confirmation of the extradition order.
