Police Commissioner says no formal request made for extradition of wanted man

JOHN’S, Antigua, May 26, CMC – Police Commissioner Wendel Robinson says he has not yet received an official request for the extradition of an Antiguan man wanted in the United States.

Wendel told the Antigua Observer that up to late Wednesday his office had not received word ffor the extradition of Franklyn Elvis Parillon.

The US has issued an arrest warrant for Parillon who is wanted in the state of Connecticut .

Parillon has been charged in connection with several crimes including strangulation in the second degree and violation of a protective order.

US security officials believe he fled to Antigua and Barbuda earlier this month while out on bail.

Robinson told the Observer that he is not “aware of any documents coming through the normal diplomatic channels for his arrest” adding that if wanted man is known to lawmen in Antigua & Barbuda, and if such a request reaches his office it will be acted on.

“If he is an Antiguan citizen, the US would have to request his extradition. The law allows the wanted man to go through the court system to stop him from being handed over to the US,” the commissioner said.

Robinson said if the fugitive doesn’t have Antiguan citizenship, then the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda has other options, including declaring the man persona non grata and deporting him from the country.

The State of Connecticut Judicial Branch issued the arrest warrant on May 11 after Parillon failed to turn up for two scheduled court hearings.
