Turks & Caicos Lodges Extradition Request

January 30, 2013

The Turks and Caicos Islands lodged a formal request for Michael Misick’s extradition with the Brazilian government yesterday [Jan 29].

Misick, the former Premier of the Turks and Caicos, is imprisoned in Brazil after being arrested on 7 December 2012. He left the Turks and Caicos in March 2012 after Interpol issued an arrest warrant for him in connection with allegations of government corruption.

A statement from the Turks and Caicos Attorney General Huw Shepheard said: “The formal request for Michael Misick’s extradition to the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) was lodged with the Brazilian government on Tue, 29 Jan 2012.

“The Turks and Caicos Islands’ Chief Magistrate and the acting Attorney General formally certified the papers last week and they were taken to Brazil on Sunday.

“Some time was needed to assemble the documentation and to have the request translated into Portuguese, however the request has been made well within the time limit imposed by the Extradition treaty, in accordance with the intention of the TCI Government and the Special Investigation Prosecution Team (SIPT) to secure Michael Misick’s return to the TCI by due process of law.”
