Christian Michel gets consular access

January 11, 2019 14:13

India has granted consular access to Christian Michel, a British national who was brought in New Delhi from the United Arab Emirates last month in connection with the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland chopper deal scam.
The British high commission had sought consular access to Michel after he was arrested in the first week of December. 
"Consular access has been granted to Michel," external affairs ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.
Michel, 57, was brought to India following his extradition by the United Arab Emirates in connection with the chopper deal case. At present, he is lodged in Tihar jail here.
It is learnt that consular access to Michel was granted on Thursday.
Michel is one of the three middlemen, being probed by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate in the case, besides Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa. Michel has denied the charges.
