Minister Of Foreign Affairs Signs Extradition File

Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred Elrington has signed the extradition file that his office received last year from the US State Department requesting the extradition of Attorney Andrew Bennett.  Today Minister Elrington spoke on the matter.

 Wilfred Elrington – Minister of Foreign Affairs

“I did sign the documents for formal procedure to commence on the extradition. There is not much more to say. I signed it on Tuesday after the Cabinet meeting.”

Reporter

“Are you satisfied with what is being presented in terms of the case that the United States is putting together for the extradition?”

Wilfred Elrington – Minister of Foreign Affairs

“Actually that is really a matter for the magistrate when it goes there. This is really a formal request and there is not much that I could do with respect to that. I am like a post office almost in that regard. But the question as to the propriety of the request and the like that will be dealt with at the magistrate stage. I did not really put any weight, concentration into that issue. As far as I’m concerned it’s really a formality, the Minister is required to sign the documents I have signed them and sent them out.”

 Reporter

“Are you satisfied thought that this is a proper and full request and not a frivolous matter”.

Wilfred Elrington – Minister of Foreign Affairs

“As I am saying to you that is a matter for the magistrate when the matter appears before them.”

 

The file has been forwarded to the Attorney General’s Ministry for further processing. The US State Department is requesting the extradition of Attorney Andrew Bennett for money laundering. The US reports that they have gathered evidence that show that Bennett laundered 250 thousand US dollars, allegedly the proceeds of drug sales belonging to Colombian and Puerto Rican drug trafficking organizations.
