This Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft of Qatar Executive has landed at the Douglas charles Airport in Dominica.
Its arrival has raised questions about who it brought to Dominica and who will be leaving Dominica onboard.
Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne told the Indian media this week: “Assuming no legal impediments, I believe within the next 48 hours [Mehul] Choksi could be perhaps in a private jet, you know, repatriated to India.”
The case of the fugitive diamantaire is proving to be a hot potato for the governments of Caribbean island countries, with Antigua and Barbuda asking the neighbouring Dominica to repatriate him to India, and the latter nation considering returning him to Antigua.
Sources in India said the government is making efforts to bring him back as soon as possible.
