Last June 11th Christian James Michel was arrested but 40 days later evidence to extradite is still missing. Christian James Michel, one of the alleged mediator in the indian bribery for the AgustaWestland helicopers has been arrested on June 11th in Dubai, where he has remained in detention for 40 days without the indian government being able to produce the evidence needed to extradite. This is the lastest turn of events in the trial between New Dehli and Italy, a trial that has been going on for five years now.
Whilst in Italy, Giuseppe Orsi, former Finmeccanica Ceo and Bruno Spagnolini, former chief of AgustaWestland have been acquitted in the appeal trial, the trial in India is still ongoing. In the last months there have been a series of extradition mandates for all suspects. Still the indian government is facing difficulties being unable to produce the actual evidence for the corruption charges, the infamous 50 million euros that are supposed to have been payed for a 550 million order.
