Here is the truth of the matter: the PM is not defending any criminal; the USA has been stubborn in extradition negotiations.
The US government submitted an extradItion request. That request was built on illegally acquired evidence and that government refuses to admit this.
The Jamaican government first agreed to process the extradition request as long as the US resubmitted a valid request. But the US refuses to admit they are wrong, and refuses to resubmit anything. Saying that the PM is defending criminals is wrong. No one must berate him.
The US government raided Iraq on false intelligence and refused to listen to the United Nations. If you negotiate with US officials you will see that they are very arrogant and will never admit when they are wrong.
PM Golding has been defending the rule of law.
