The Turks and Caicos Government has now filed a formal request to Brazilian authorities for the extradition of former premier Michael Misick.
Former premier Michael Misick - File.
Misick, is being sought in relation to a criminal investigation into systematic corruption in government.
He was arrested in Brazil on December 7, 2012.
“The Turks and Caicos Islands’ Chief Magistrate and the acting Attorney General formally certified the papers last week and they were taken to Brazil on Sunday,” said a TCI Attorney General Huw Shepheard.
“Some time was needed to assemble the documentation and to have the request translated into Portuguese, however the request has been made well within the time limit imposed by the Extradition treaty, in accordance with the intention of the TCI Government and the Special Investigation Prosecution Team to secure Michael Misick's return to the TCI by due process of law," Shepheard continued.
