Bermudian held after US extradition request

A 62-year-old Bermudian was held yesterday in connection with an extradition request from the United States.

Paul Martin appeared in Magistrates’ Court after he was arrested under a provisional warrant.

Loxly Ricketts, Crown prosecutor, told the court that Martin had pleaded guilty to vehicular assault in the second degree in connection with an incident in New York in December 2005.

But Mr Ricketts said that Martin had absconded while on bail pending sentence.

Jonathan White, who appeared for Martin, argued that his client should be granted bail.

But Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Martin in custody for another court appearance on June 27.
