Speaking to a local newspaper, Antigua PM Gaston Browne has confirmed Mehul Choksi's citizenship will be revoked. Choksi along with Nirav Modi is the main accused in the Rs 11, 400 crore PNB scam. Browne said that Choksi's Antigua and Barbuda citizenship will be revoked soon. “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 harbor for criminals, for those who are involved in financial crimes,” the prime minister was quoted as saying.
