Three to challenge time on remand

Social Share

Three men?who have been on remand at Dodds Prison for the past 18 months, pending extradition proceedings to the United States to face drugs charges, are challenging the constitutionality of their extended remand.
Frederick Hawkesworth, John Wayne Scantlebury and Sean Gaskin were remanded to Dodds Prison in June 2011 following an extradition hearing which took seven years.
But after two bail hearings during the 18 months they have been on remand, in which decisions were made only last week, the men have filed habeus corpus proceedings challenging the constitutionality of the remand without a decision over the 18-month period.
They are also challenging the extradition decision. (MB)
