By BBN Staff: Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington, following yesterday’s press briefing with the Ahmad family, told the media that he has signed off on the extradition file from the US State Department for wanted attorney Andrew Bennet.
According to Elrington, the process is mainly a formality at this point. Elrington said he signed the documents on Tuesday following Cabinet’s meeting.
The documents have since been forwarded to the Attorney General’s ministry. According to Elrington, the next step is for the Attorney General’s ministry to take the case before the Magistrate’s Court for the issuance of a provisional warrant.
Bennet is wanted in the US on charges of money laundering.
