Legal arguments continued Tuesday as the extradition case of Alex Tasker, the former insurance executive allegedly connected to the Donville Inniss money laundering case, resumed before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
The hearing was then adjourned until June 7 before Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes.
The former senior manager at the Insurance Corporation of Barbados Ltd. (ICBL) is before the Chief Magistrate following a request for his extradition to the United States to stand trial on money laundering charges.
Prosecutors allege that between August 2015 and April 2016 he conspired with others to launder money in the US from outside the country in violation of US law.
Deputy Director of Public Prosecution Alliston Seale and Senior Crown Counsel Oliver Thomas are the prosecutors in the case. Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim and attorney Neville Reid are Tasker’s defence lawyers.
The business executive remains on $200,000 bail.
