Examining UK s request for consular access to Christian Michel: MEA

The External Affairs Ministry Thursday said it was examining a request by the British High Commission for seeking consular access to Christian Michel, the British national who was brought here from the UAE two days ago in connection with the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland chopper deal scam. We have received a request from the UK High Commission seeking consular access. The matter at this point of time is being examined within the ministry, MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar told reporters. He said the government will revert to the British High Commission soon. On Wednesday, the British High Commission sought consular access to Michel, the alleged middleman accused of bribing politicians and officials to swing the chopper deal in Agusta s favour. An official in the High Commission said that the British government was in contact with Michel s family. Michel, 57, was brought to India late Tuesday night following his extradition by the United Arab Emirates in connection with the chopper deal
