SHOCKER: Smith lawyer to put US on the stand

Providenciales, 09 Apr 2015 – David Smith’s Lawyer says he wants to ‘cross examine’ the United States before they try to extradite the former Olint boss, who is convicted in the US of running a Ponzi Scheme. In a surprise move and likely a last ditch effort, Smith’s legal team is trying to block an extradition order by challenging the US courts affidavit. During proceedings Wednesday, Magnetic Media learned that the document will expose detailed information on Smith’s crime, arrest, charges, conviction, sentencing and even his plea deal with American authorities. Oliver Smith, attorney for David Smith was reminded that his client is already convicted; sentenced to 30-years for bilking over six thousand investors of a reported $220 million.

Soon after David Smith had completed his sentence in the Turks and Caicos for the same charges, he was re-arrested and picked up by TCI Police. The US reportedly did not present the correct documents to extradite David Smith immediately after serving six years in HMP; the matter was taken to local court and the US was given about a month to make a proper representation. Oliver Smith will get his chance to question American authorities on the so called validity of the Extradition Order; proceedings were to resume today, but the hearing was adjourned.
