In a statement, the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs confirmed that Mr. Sookdeo, who is also a Canadian citizen and a US resident, was extradited on Tuesday.

Mr. Sookdeo was handed over to U.S. marshals by the Interpol Bureau, led by Sergeant Herman Narace, with assistance from the OCNFB and the CID Task Force.
