VVIP chopper scam: court refuses bail to Michel


A Delhi court on Thursday refused interim bail to Christian Michel, the alleged middleman in the VVIP chopper deal case, citing “allegations of economic offences against him”.

The accused had sought bail in money laundering and corruption cases being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and CBI for seven days to celebrate Easter, for a medical check-up at a private hospital and legal interviews with his lawyers for making preparation for filing a regular bail.

Dismissing his bail plea, Special Judge Arvind Kumar said: “There are serious allegations against the accused of commission of grave economic offence. As per the ED, investigation on certain crucial aspects is still going and the accused has close links with many influential persons and may tamper with evidence. He may also abscond.”

“Thus, considering the overall facts and circumstances, I do not find any ground for admitting the accused to interim bail. The applications for interim bail are dismissed,’’ Mr. Kumar said. Read More
