T&T national extradited to the US

Daveanan Sookdeo, the T&T national wanted for fraud in the US, has been extradited.

A statement from the Attorney General’s Office says he was handed over to two US Marshals shortly after midnight yesterday.

Sookdeo is accused of conspiracy to defraud the US and commit theft of government funds, submitting false claims to the US, and the interstate and foreign transportation of money taken by fraud.

These were allegedly committed between 2006 and 2010 in the US and Canada, after which he fled to T&T.

Sookdeo was arrested by Interpol on July 28th in Debe.

Several days later, he appeared before Chief Magistrate Maria Busby Earle-Caddle where he consented to the extradition.
