UPDATE: Antigua PM asks Dominica government to send Indian fugitive back to his country

Mehul Choksi

It seems Antigua and Dominica are engaged in a game of “keep away” or “hot potato” with Mehul Choksi a wanted man in India who was apprehended by Dominican police this week.

Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne has given clear instructions to authorities in Dominica to have Mehul Choksi repatriated to India.

“We asked them not to repatriate him to Antigua. He needs to return to India where he can face the criminal charges leveled against him”, Browne said the journalists in the twin island state.

Browne indicated that Choksi would enjoy certain legal and constitutional protections in Antigua and Barbuda as an Antiguan citizen that he would not enjoy in Dominica as he understood that Choksi is not a Dominican citizen. For this reason he believes that it would be easy for Dominican to repatriate him directly to India.

Choksi is wanted by the Indian judicial authorities for criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust, cheating and dishonesty including delivery of property, corruption, and money laundering.

Indian-born fugitive is in the custody of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Dominica.

Choksi was reported missing in Antigua and Barbuda on Sunday by a family member, sparking a manhunt for him.

Yesterday, local police said they were seeking help from local and regional law enforcement counterparts and had asked Interpol to issue a yellow notice list.

He was apprehended by lawmen in the wee hours of Tuesday morning in Toucari.

Antigua and Barbuda has initiated the process to cancel Choksi’s citizenship granted under the Caribbean nation’s Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) in November 2017 but he has challenged the government’s move in court.

    Really, Gaston? “Browne indicated that Choksi would enjoy certain legal and constitutional protections in Antigua and Barbuda as an Antiguan citizen that he would not enjoy in Dominica as he understood that Choksi is not a Dominican citizen. For this reason he believes that it would be easy for Dominican to repatriate him directly to India.
    “We asked them not to repatriate him to Antigua. He needs to return to India where he can face the criminal charges leveled against him”
    Gaston, Choksi is an Antiguan Citizen, If he’s to be deported it has to be to ANTIGUA, NOT India. Seriously? Deportation is to the place of citizenship. If he wasn’t an Antiguan citizen, yes.

    When will Roosevelt wake up? When will Roosevelt stop allowing others to DICTATE what he should do? Hopefully, Roosevelt does the right thing, not listening to Gaston. Gaston would be LAUGHING at you. Gaston’s hands will be clean. That’s what you all get for giving criminals “citizenship by investment”…

     In any event Dominica is a sovereign country; and I doubt that any Antiguan, have the authority to dictate to Roosevelt Skerrit; “the government of Dominica” how to deal with an International matter!

    If the criminal is wanted by India to where he was born; if he is on the run, and captured in Dominica; the authorities in Dominica should be the only authority at this time to decide the fate of the fugitive.

    We know that Roosevelt always finds himself in situations where other leaders in the Caribbean uses him like a toy, and dictate to him what he should; or should not do in our country; this is simply a crooked crook in Antigua dictating to another corrupted crook in Dominica, how Dominica’s legal authorities should deal with the matter.

    Again I have not converted over to Roosevelt; nevertheless I suggest Gaston Brown is out of place; If that man is sent back to Antigua; India can kiss him good reddens!
    Another example of crooks buying Passports!

    “Antigua PM asks Dominica government to send Indian fugitive back to his country.”

    But as things stand, by way of CIP citizenship, Antigua is his country. India does not allow dual nationality.

    This kind of brazen kidnapping as defined by the attorney on Q95 earlier today is stuff straight out of the movies. It reminds me of the ALLEGED “near miss” on Mr. Linton’s life during the election season when alleged missionaries visited our shores and went looking for him allegedly with the assistance of our very own police officers. These are activities straight out of Putin’s book similar to the Ryan Air hijacking by Belarus using their air force and a ruse bomb threat allegedly by Hamas.

    This man is lucky to be alive today. I am led to believe that he promised millions to his kidnappers if they would spare his life. Believe me, that’s just the tip of the iceburg. If and when this Choksi gets to talk the smell will permeate our government and most likely the regional cabal. Sadly, only a revolution will change things in Dca but alas the people are fast asleep…..SMMFH. I am ready for the fight to the end!!!!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twist

        @Anon, if you took the time to learn and you want to be fair and balanced, you would know that QC Justin Simon residing in Antigua contacted these worthy lawyers to provide legal representation for Choksi. Why aren’t you happy that the man is getting legal representation which is a norm of the legal practice. When there are charges brought against someone, the court usually informs the defendant that if they can’t afford a lawyer then one would be provided. All of a sudden you seem to not want the court practice of legal representation to extend to Choksi. I’m wondering why?

  7. Winners & Losers
    May 27, 2021

    Before I give my opinion of who I believe are the winners and losers, I would like to kindly ask DNO to do some independent investigation for us because DNO told us that according to police report Mr. Mehul Choksi was arrested in Toucari. However, other international reporters said Mehul Choksi, was captured at Canfield Beach in Roseau, and was found destroying papers and dumping them in the sea.
    Now the winners: In my opinion Mr. Gaston Brown and Antigua were the big winners because they gave the world the impression that they were on a mission to have Mehul Choksi extradited to Indian, where he is wanted but he ran out of Antigua. Another big winner to me is PM Skerrit. He must be rewarded for being the umpire in this game.

    The Loser: Dominica in my opinion is the big loser as once again we confirmed to the world that wanted criminals are welcome here. DA is like a criminal with a bad record so if you want to commit a crime, just pay that person to commit the crime for you

    Just listening to Brown and the silent stories in Dominica it seems to me that as a citizen of antigua browns hands were tied. The guy according to brown has rights as an Antiguan citizen and there may be mounting pressure from india. Antigua possibly does not have extradition treaty of its citizens to India so the best move was to enable him to escape to Dominica where Brown may have arranged with Our PM to have him picked up so he can be sent to India. In Dominica he is illegal and has no protection against extradition. That gave brown enough time revoke his antigua citizenship. The fact that commish et al go pick him up seems to indicate some high level communication. Toucari is ideal spot to not have public attention. The frat boys helping out each other. I believe someone facilitated his deliberate travel to Dominica deceptively so and Dominica knew about it all along. The presence of commissioner says it all.

      That’s only a hypothesis, extradition treaty or not, if the man committed a crime in India, and the Indian government has tract him to Antigua, the crime must be very serious.
      Do not insinuate that Brown allow him to escape to Dominica so that authorities in India can pick him up in Dominica; if that hypothesis had any merits, why would the same Gaston now demand that Roosevelt return him to Antigua under the pretense of his rights as an Antiguan citizen?

      You see the roosters are coming home to roost!

      Practically all involved in the buying citizenship, in the Caribbean are all crooks, if they are not thieves and murders, they indulge so that they can move from their country to the more wealthy and prosperous countries with opportunities; i.e; more than two hundred Chines arrived in Canada one day.

      Not one of them spoke a word of English; yet they all carried Dominica passports, the immigration pack them all on the flight they arrived; returned them to China!

          You are right there is no law against speculating When information is not available. I’m not against people speculating as to what happened but making innuendos and allegation from the perspective of partisan politics trying to implicate people in criminal activity is beyond the bounds of speculating but conclusion, they know what happened. You are no different, do not hide behind the presence of speculation.

          It is just a matter of time we will all know the true story as to what happened, enjoy you ride on the illusion of the speculating wagon.

    May 26, 2021

    Can you all understand why CARICOM, most CARIBBEAN ruling parties and even Caribbean Court system want Roosevelt Skerrit to be PM of Dominica and will do all it takes to keep him in power? Forget about how Mia took Ross from us. Forget about how Ralph took our international airport from us. Forget about St. Kitts former PM being kicked out of office because he had our diplomatic passport while he was pm . Just think of how Antigua got rid of their fugitive and some how Dominica received him, whether the deal was legal or illegal or known or unknown by both authorities. The fact of the matter is, another known wanted fugitive was able to come to Dominica whether through back door or front door. What a shame! There is no way this guy would make it to Dominica if Lennox Linton was PM. No way whatsoever!!!

    No Surprise! No Accident! that this international fugitive of the law sought refuge in Dominica which is a Haven for the biggest global crooks and criminals.

    Why is it that he (Choksi) didn’t try to hide out in St. Kitts, St. Vincent, St. Lucia or Barbados? Something is definitely amiss.

    This is another Black Eye, another permanent Stain added to Dominica’s now tattered image and reputation as a shelter for wealthy miscreants, deserters and renegades. This is no happenchance that these are happening only under the stewardship of Mr. Skerrit as prime minister.

    My final comment is this. A honey bee is attracted to the brightest and prettiest flowers NEVER to garbage. Flies are attracted to garbage and filth NEVER to clean, fragrant things. Why is it that these shady, dirty, criminal characters are attracted to Mr. Skerrit? My answer is – ‘Birds of a feather flock together’.

        Give us a reason Kid. I will be the happiest Dominican to report it, trust me.

        I wholeheartedly agree with you KID. When Skerrit abdicates the throne of government and someone of integrity replaces him. The man consistently attracts global undesirable publicity to Dominica.

        This incident is sure to make headline news regionally and internationally. Is this good to attract well needed, above board, foreign direct investments?

        Antigua repudiated him and wants him extradited to his home of origin. But the fugitive sees Dominica as a haven for international crooks like himself. SMH

        Tiny KID, every time you open your mouth you give people fodder to denounce you. Try to differentiate between criticism of Dominica and criticism of the Dominican government.

        Most Dominicans love their country. It is the finest jewel in the Caribbean region with majestic mountain;, verdant hills; shimmering rivers; green, lush vegetation; spectacular natural/physical features plus.

        What people tend to castigate is the poor and unacceptable governance of the country for the past twenty (20) consecutive years justifiably so.

        Said all of this for your edification. Now you know.

        @KId On The Block, you and some surrogates who pretend to care about the “good imagine” of Dominca, need to answer the question, what does this news and fallout from it do for the good name of Dominica? Some greedy businessmen in the country sought to crucify Lennox Linton, after he answered questions from CBS on the corruption associated with the CBI program, saying that he was sullying the good name of Dominica. Now this news that another international fugitive is found hiding out in Dominca is again dirtying the good name of Dominica. Who is the leader of Dominca? Which party is the government of Dominca? Why haven’t the boat operators who brought Chosky to Dominca arrested? Why did it take 5 days before the public is informed that this criminal is found hiding in Dominca? I’m assuming that Skerritt and Blackmore were informed about it by Monday. It’s the patriotic opposition citizens who genuinely care about the good name of Dominica. Lip service is a copout.

        ADMIN: Our sources indicate he was apprehended on Tuesday, that is less than five days.

          Admin, the lawyer informed Q95 FM radio that Choski, his client, was apprehended on Monday. I’m sure that Skerritt and Blackmore were notified the same day. Choski was reported missing from Antigua on Sunday, even if he was allegedly abducted on Friday. How many days does it take a speed boat from Antigua to Dominca? That means that Choski was in Dominica before Tuesday.

          ADMIN: Point noted.

      Yes he’s an Indian fugitive.. He fled from India. He has not commited any crimes in Antigua so he is not wanted in Antigua.

        @Ray ann, who cares where he committed his crime? The fact of the matter is that he’s an international fugitive from justice. He’s another criminal who thought that he would get a hideout in Dominica of all places. Aren’t you concerned that your homeland is the place of choice sought out by international criminals fleeing from the long arm of the law?

        Indeed, that’s why they put him on a boat to Dominica.

    Thank you to the Antiguan sources!!!!
    I suspect our unaccomplished commissioner of police doh get de permission to make dat info public. Little poor people like us can get de million dollar information!!! No amount of millions nor billions of dollars could prevent de truth from coming out…
    It’s interesting that de fugitive is being sent back to Antigua rather than turning him over to interpol!!!!
    If de Antiguan PM is saying that de guy is bringing negative publicity to Antigua then it would be disastrous for Skerrit to keep him here
    I have a feeling Skerrit and Blackmore scared of Interpol

    Is it that Choksi came on island because he must have heard of Monfared, and how long (he) Monfared was harboured by a gang of criminals in Dominica????????

      You must be shocked and bewildered to find out that the fugitive is in Dominica police custody; some of you wished that the police had not apprehended him so that the government would be blamed for harboring a fugitive. How shameful.

        Your memory bank is thin.
        Wasn’t Ali Reza Zibahalat Monfared a fugitive?
        Who harboured him?

          You forget about Pieter Nolen, who was living in luxury with all his fancy cars at Pointe Michel with our CBI passport and is now serving eight years prison in Holland for money laundering. Our card has been truly marked and I feel I’m watched with suspicion every time I travel with my Dominican passport now.

        But tell us how Dominican police knew where to find and arrest him. Something smell bad and it is not my feet.

    Dam fool. How he expect to hide in Dominica? Sticks out like a sore thumb.
    He should have gone to st. Vincent , T & T or Guyana where there is a sizable Indian population

      Did that guy intend buying a passport from Skerrit…?

      No man, I believe that was all conveniently arrange between two pals Skerrit and Browne. Browne got rid of a problem and Skerrit gets a big thank you from India when that fellow is put on a plane to go there and face the music. Problem solved, everybody happy.

    How did he (Choksi) enter the country? Heard Antigua’s PM Gaston Brown saying Choksi must have fled Antigua via the sea.. Did Choksi enter Dominica via backdoor? Where was he arrested? Who else was arrested?
    Now why is it that those shady characters like Dominica so much? Is it that they are coming to join others from Dominica that are equally polluted?
    Remember Ali Reza Zibahalat Monfarred?
    Was he residing at Morne Daniel?
    Did he pass dirty money through our banking system?
    Did he divert money to a gas station up north? You all believe that those questions will just disappear? This government has myriads of questions to answer!!
    Dominica is a cesspool of corruption!!!
