June 21, 2022 | Colin O. Jarrett | Former Premier of the British Virgin Islands, BVI Andrew Fahie has signed an extradition waiver that prevents him from remaining in another country if he takes flight while out on bond ahead of his trial next month.
The extradition waiver was part of the condition of Fahie’s modified bail bond, which amounted to 1 million US dollars and was divided into two parts.
The extradition waiver states in part that if Fahie were to flee to any country apart from the US or its territories, the government may seek his return through an extradition process or any other means for the purpose of trial or if convicted, sentencing or service of sentence.
Fahie; who was arrested on April 28 at a Miami-domestic Airport following a sting operation related to drug smuggling and money laundering, is scheduled to face trial on July 18 before US District Judge Kathleen Williams.
