For the third time in as many hearings a Barbadian man fighting an extradition attempt by Canada had his matter adjourned.
When 64-year-old Errol Vivian Jones, of Bridgefield, St Thomas appeared before Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court today, the matter was adjourned until March 7, 2019.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Rudolph Burnett did not object to bail, meaning Jones will remain on $15 000 bail.
Canadian authorities are seeking to have Jones extradited to finish serving the remaining 889 days of a sentence for breaching the conditions of his parole.
However, Jones is contending that he was deported from Canada and is questioning how a warrant of arrest could be issued for him when at the same time he was in the custody of Immigration officers and being escorted from the country.
