An appeal was yesterday struck down for Leroy King, the embattled former administrator of the Financial Services Regulatory Commission (FSRC), who is seeking to stop his extradition to the United States to face 11 fraud related charges stemming from the US$7 billion Ponzi scheme by Allen Stanford.
The Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court handed down the decision during a sitting in St. Kitts. The ruling came several months after Antigua and Barbuda’s Director of Public Prosecutions, Anthony Armstrong, and King, through his lawyers, argued against and for the appeal respectively.
But, the legal journey which started several years ago, can be further prolonged if King appeals again, this time to the Privy Council. Efforts to reach his lawyer Dr. David Dorsett for comment last evening were unsuccessful.
So far though, King’s lawyers have not made any application for a stay of execution to stop the authorities in Antigua and Barbuda from turning him over to U.S. officials to finally face the court in that country which issued a warrant for him since 2009.
