David Smith Arrested – To be Extradited to the USA

On Friday, ABC news via an Associated Press(AP) article had quoted a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Amy Filjones, in the Middle District of Florida,  saying that the U.S. government was “actively seeking to extradite” David Smith from the Turks and Caicos Island(TCI)

On Saturday, the Jamaica Gleaner reported that David Smith had been arrested on Friday, January 23, 2015 on a provisional warrant and will be extradited to the United States of America next week.

Given that David Smith served only little more that four years in  a TCI prison it is will be interesting to see if he will serve 24 or 26 more years in a USA prison.

Why David Smith was released on January 22, 2015 with no arrangements made to have him immediately picked up by the United States Authorities is a question the Turks and Caicos Authorities would have to answer.

While his wife and family might be grateful, many who would have suffered as a result of Olint will be left wondering why?
