KINGSTON – The United States Department of Justice has welcomed the government’s decision to sign the extradition request for West Kingston strongman Christopher “Dudus” Coke.“We are pleased with the decision to instruct the attorney general to proceed with the extradition process,” Laura E. Sweeney of the Office of Public Affairs of the US Department of Justice told The Gleaner on Tuesday.But Sweeny refused to offer any further information.“I can’t comment beyond the statement I provided, as the department doesn’t discuss specific matters of mutual legal assistance,” she said.Kingston and Washington have been at odds since last September when an indictment was unsealed in the US.
