  1. Hey, our Lennox Linton was supposed to accompany Choksi!
    Noticing the media outside, perhaps he decided to hide inside the car?

  2. He is fit and in good condition. Good to board the chartered flight back to India.

  3. You could a arrive Inna wan stretcher – you must answer to the ILLEGAL ENTRY into Dominica.

    At least you look like you lost some weight. Now go back to INDIA and face your people. Clear your name if you are so innocent.

    Did u pay ppl to beat you up or you did it to yourself?
    No sympathy for this lyadd and kanman

    Harl he baxide bakka INDIA

  4. Once there is life there is hope, it would be nice to hear on the News that Antigua and Barbuda is doing it’s best to secure and stand by one of our citizens but I guess we rarely make it in good headlines regionally and internationally. The thing is if God that is God doesn’t judge a man until his last days who are we to judge? That’s why some of us lives can’t run no better cause we show no mercy, we receive no mercy, we show no love, we receive no love, we quick to pull rug fram under people, people quick to pull the rug fram under us. Then we walk an bawl we are being victimized 🙄

  5. The same measure shall be given to Locals abroad as well when they slip up. They will have their personal experiences too. Like people forget they travel and have family abroad as well. They forget that life is unpredictable, they forget that blood run through their veins too.
    My creator soon come for his chosen people, May God have his mercies on our souls for the things we say and do to each other.

    • Locals abroad aren’t “Diamond mogul scammaz” who allegedly defrauded Punjab National Bank. Skoot him on a dagger log to his beloved India

  6. This slabby INDIAN CROOK make Nigerian scammers look like angels.

    Is Justin Simon the Dominican still his lawyer?? Wishing him a SPEEDY RETURN to his homeland INDIA.

    For all the money and riches he has/had, he couldn’t afford a private chef to make him vegan dishes to fight his obesity???

    Send him back to INDIA 🇮🇳
    Send him back to INDIA 🇮🇳
    Send him back to INDIA 🇮🇳

    Send his fat ass back to INDIA 🇮🇳

  7. See he is taking time to enjoy his last moments in the Caribbean. Soon back to India to answer the charges, once the DA court agrees. Even jonah had to be thrown over board. He may thank us one day, sometimes short good byes are best

  8. I see everybody so quick to bash the man just because he have more money than u. You all should be focused on the blatant abuse of the law and abuse of power that brought the man from Antigua to Dominica. Bunch of ignorant chupid people u be. India is known to persecute people based on the political leanings. He actually has no real charges against him in India. They are all falsified without any real evidence of crime. Just be glad you don’t live under a caste system and aren’t subject to witch hunts like the Indian political system. Y’all r dumb dumb dumb. If this can happen to this man, it can happen to any antiguan citizen, that they choose to destroy their character for a whatever political gain or any other motivation people in power may have. He is a citizen of this country regardless how he obtained such a status. His rights should be protected just like arwe. Anyone who opposes this is just plain bitter because they are ignorant, and want to see a successful man burn. Antiguan people dunce a rass. India is more crooked than we r. I don’t know what this man did really and truly, but I imagine his charges are extremely trumped up. And the matter in which he was brought to Dominica is criminal. This is not how anyone should be treated regardless of the circumstances. Y’all are dumb. I hope to see Choksi brought back to Antigua where he is a citizen.

    • I have been following this saga about choksi ,and there is a lot of hate in these post against a human that you all don’t even know. Bitterness and hate against somebody that did nothing to you all. When you live in glass house please don’t throw stones. Some of you all want God to have mercy on you and forgive you all but you all don’t know how to do the same to your fellow humans. Where is the humanity? where is the compassion? How can you all claim to love God u never see yet hate people u can see? You all must be careful what comes out of you all mouth. stop judging people for things you know nothing about, not because they say he is a thief mean he is really a thief. Jump up on the band wagon to crucify the man and you all don’t know if the accusations are factual. People you all must stop.

      • For you, he is a guest citizen. For India, he is a fraud who sold artificial diamond for the price of original diamond. He took loan of 1.9 billion dollars showing original diamond inventory, but all those were artificial lab made diamonds. He took money from a government bank which actually serves poor people and small farmers. 2 billion dollars fraud was big shock for PNB which somehow survived.. you can search internet and find out reason to hate this trickster.

    • Will you pamper someone who steals from your public Banks which takes deposit from poor people and small farmers?

      FYI, this fraud belongs to highest caste of Indian caste system. He belongs to the same state from which current prime minister Shree Narendra Modi belongs to. He was favourite businessman of India till people understood that he took loan of 2 billion dollars showing diamond inventory of 4 billion dollars. But those diamonds were not original and valued less than 10 million dollars…

      If he did same to people of Carribbean, would you forgive him?

      He is bringing bad name to your country. Today, in India, every child knows name of Antigua as hiding place of this thief. Do you want 1.5 billion people thinking bad about your nation for this thief? Is it worth?

  9. Every Antiguan was showing sympathy for Allen Stanford but none showing for Choksi, why, because he’s not a white American. Shows how black people love kiss white man a$$. India sends free vaccines, have we gotten from the white man whose a$$ we love kiss

    • Nothing to do with colour narrow-minded. The sympathy is for the Standford workers. Standford actually created companies and jobs for the economy (unlike this Indian trickster). Standford had to face the courts and so must Mehul Choksi!!!

  10. One thing is certain that picture looks like somewhere in St. Johns….

    How is it the all these leaders that knows everything has failed to move their individual territories out of the 1735 era….

    This is my take away from the pics, the caribbean is in serious trouble…

    • One thing is certain, he can run, swim, hide, fly or crawl – he is tgoing back to India!

  11. the rule of law must always prevail no matter the creed,race,ethnicity,gender,rich or poor.This is not about emotions.hate or feelings.some of you really need some maturity even the Most High gave the accuser of the brethren a will power and rights.

  12. I am Indian and just stumbled on this newspaper/website. Pretty impressed by the reporting. You unbiasedly cover all the angles/views. While the overwhelming majority of comments are extremely and understandably angry with this fugitive who managed to bribe his way to seek refuge in the Caribbean/Antigua & Barbuda in 2018, thanks to a completely-abused ‘Citizenship-by-Investment’ scheme, it is high time many of your citizens are made aware of who this international criminal and most-innocent looking scamster is!

    Mehul Chinubhai Choksi is an Indian from Gujarat. At one time his retail jewellery company had 4,000 stores in India, selling fake diamonds! That kind of clout helped him pocket powerful and highly corrupt cabinet ministers like Chidambaram and literally loot a staggering $1.8 billion (loans with no collaterals!) from one of the Govt-owned banks, that primarily caters to the poor and middle class.

    His entire family are scamsters, with his nephew Nirav Modi already in a London jail fighting a extradition case. In fact, his brother Chetan ought to be arrested in Dominica (where he is busy bribing all those who matter) since he too scammed ICCI Bank-London of $55 million! Most of these criminal billionaire scamsters are on Interpol’s Red Alert yet have managed to fly-out with entire family and settled down in London or Antwerp, including the likes of Vijay Mallya, Lalit Modi..etc

    From cheating to corruption, money-laundering, fraud, embezzlement…etc, these new-age, extraordinary criminals (who have the high and mighty on their payroll’s) have taken full advantage of the political system in India, where in politicians/ministers are competing to get their goodwill/fortune and is aided by a corrupt judiciary is of the British era. Like Lennox Linton or Harold Lovell, in India too this genius of a criminal has many political friends with absolutely no shame.

    Well, to those wo are shedding crocodile tears in Dominica, pls think of the poorest in India whose life-time savings was looted in daylight by this super-rich billionaire who has so much illegal fortune that it is much more than the GDP of many countries in the Caribbean!

    The day is not far, when only a Israel Mossad type of stealth operation will succeed in punishing such heartless most-ruthless billionaire-criminals.

  13. And believe you and your opinions . You say you’re an Indian Ajay Rao .This is the internet for all I know you could be anyone trying to pursued your agenda . Has he been tried in a court of law the answer is clearly no . He is a Citizen of Àntigua and Barbuda and entitled to every protection afforded.until ordered otherwise by the Courts . .

    • Shame on you Robert. I hope you are not a citizen here.
      You are indeed still in bliss over the pre-Vere Bird era!
      Who knows you may as well be Lennox Linton or some other shameless traitor or politicians or perhaps one these insensitive lawyers who will sell their souls for ill-gotten money or defend the worst of all criminals!
