|Report: Foreign Minister Signs Off On Bennett Extradition File|
|Wed, January 10, 2018|
Attorney Andrew Bennett could be one step closer to a US extradition tonight. Reports to 7News say that Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington has signed off on the extradition file sent by the US State Department and forwarded it to the Attorney General's Ministry.
That would mean that Elrington is satisfied that he is satisfied that all documentation from the US is in order. It's an important step - since not all requests that arrive at the Foreign Minister's office are forwarded on for action.
The next steps would be for the AG's Ministry to satisfy itself, and then take the case to the Chief Magistrate for the issuance of a provisional warrant.
