#AgustaWestlandScam: Plea Seeking Interim Bail – Christian Michel

2020-03-26

British national Christian Michel (59), accused in Agusta Westland scam moved a fresh application seeking release on bail amid the risk of contracting COVID-19 infection in Tihar Jail.

In reference to the recent order passed by the Supreme Court which directed the States/UTs to consider grant of parole or interim bail to prisoners and under-trials to de-congest prisons the application was moved.

Christian Michel is accused of having entered into as many as 12 contracts with AgustaWestland to legitimize the illicit commission/kickbacks amounting to 42.27 Euro million received on the procurement of VVIP helicopters by the Government of India. Michel was arrested by Enforcement Directorate following his extradition from Dubai in December 2018 and has been under custody ever since. Many of his earlier bail applications were dismissed by Courts.
