THE application for a Judicial review filed by lawyers seeking to prevent the extradition of Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke to the United States, has been delayed until Wednesday.
The matter was adjourned after Minister of Justice Dorothy Lightbourne filed an affidavit today to which Don Foote, Cook’s lead attorney, said he needed time in which to respond.
Coke is wanted by the United States to face gun and drug trafficking charges. It was the signing of his arrest warrant that sparked attacks by gunmen on security forces and the ensuing State of Emergency.
He is seeking a Judicial Review of the decision by the justice minister, giving the authority to proceed with extradition proceedings against him.
The case before the Supreme Court does not prevent the police from executing the arrest warrant against him.
