Rhett Fuller’s extradition battle continues

Rhett Fuller

For over ten years Rhett Fuller has been fighting his extradition to the U.S. The case, which has been in and out of court, is in connection with the murder of Larry Miller, a U.S National. In September of last year, the Minister of Foreign Affairs decided to surrender Fuller to the U.S. Following that pronouncement, Justice Samuel Awich dismissed a challenge that was aimed at that extradition surrender. Last month, the judge denied Fuller’s petition for release from prison. The head of Fuller’s legal team was back in the Court of Appeal today to appeal the decision of Justice Awich; but after some thirty to forty minutes it was announced that Fuller’s case will be traversed to the June session. Justice Awich asked that a written submission be presented early for the Court of Appeal to deal with the matter expeditiously so that a ruling can be handed down in the June session.
