Antigua to revoke Mehul Choksi's citizenship, likely to extradite him

In fresh trouble for fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi, the Antiguan government on Tuesday has decided to revoke the citizenship. Antiguan PM Gaston Browne in a statement said, "His citizenship was processed; he got through but the reality is his citizenship will be revoked and he will be repatriated to India; so there is recourse. It’s not a case that we are trying to provide any safe harbour for criminals, for those who are involved in financial crimes."
