On Friday, Dominican High Court declined to grant bail to fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi. According to sources, the High Court rejected the bail plea of Choksi and called him ‘a flight risk’. The court said that Mehul Choksi has no connection with Dominica and it cannot impose any condition which will assure that he will not abscond. According to local media, 62-year-old Choksi will again appear before the court on Monday. He is accused of illegally entering Dominica, but Choksi claims that he was kidnapped and forcibly brought there.
