BC's highest court has reserved judgment on the latest legal action taken by acquitted Air India suspect Ripudaman Singh Malik.
Less than two months after he re-paid a government loan covering legal fees during his trial, Malik is trying to get that 6.3-million dollars back.
The money, which includes interest, came from February's sale of one building in Yaletown for more than 14-million dollars.
Since he was first ordered to repay the loan in may of 2009, Malik has filed numerous appeals.
He claims the agreement he signed should be voided because he was under duress.
Earlier this month, he dropped his lawsuit for malicious prosecution, but he's still facing civil action for fraud--based on claims he transferred numerous assets to his wife and children.
It's been seven years since Malik and co-accused, Ajaib Singh Bagri, were acquitted of masterminding Canada's worst act of terror, killing 331 people in 1985.
