Attorney Stacy Goodings, who is representing the interests of the United States, is expected to call three remaining witnesses to testify in the extradition proceedings against ex-policeman Shawn Neblett.

Neblett is wanted by the United States Government in relation to trafficking narcotics through the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).

Today, the extradition proceedings continued before Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

Testifying in the matter today was Ormella Gladstone, a Treaty Officer at the Ministry of Public Security. She spoke extensively on receiving several documents from the Minister of Public Security. The documents were then tendered and marked exhibits.

After her testimony, the woman was subjected to cross-examination by attorney-at-law Darren Wade. Attorney Goodings then informed the court that she will be calling three remaining witnesses.

The matter was adjourned until September 24 for continuation.

On February 2, 2017, police issued a wanted bulletin for Shawn Neblett in connection with trafficking in of narcotics through CJIA, Timehri.

Neblett, who had been evading the police, was arrested last May at Moleson Creek, Berbice, while illegally attempting to cross over to Suriname.
