Mr Warner surrendered to an arrest warrant, on Wednesday 28 May 2015, and spent one night in a Trinidadian prison, before being bailed the following day. At a hearing before the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court, Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar ordered that the US had until 26 July 2015 to send an extradition request to the government of Trinidad and Tobago.
The US request for extradition was made on Wednesday 22 July. Gavin Nicholas, Trinidad and Tobago’s Attorney General, told press that his office will now consider the US request before deciding whether Mr Warner’s extradition should go before a magistrate.
