To avoid extradition, Mallya will quote political vendetta
In any extradition proceedings, one major point that needs to be proven is that the process is not politically motivated. Vijay Mallya's extradition proceedings before a UK court which would begin on May 17 would see his lawyers arguing that he is a victim of political agenda.
The UK's Crown Prosecution Service which will argue on behalf of the Indian authorities will not only have to justify the charges against him, but also demonstrate that the case is not politically motivated. Mallya's lawyers on the other hand would demonstrate that this entire episode is politically motivated.
Mallya's legal team would also tell the court that the extradition is politically motivated and if the same is granted then it would amount to human rights violation.
His legal team would also state that he would not get justice if he has to stand trial in India. They would say that they do not trust the judicial system in India because the case on hand itself is politically motivated and agenda driven.
India on the other hand would have to put up a strong case. Apart from the legal arguments, India will also have to make use of all diplomatic channels to ensure that the case goes in their favour.
