Three months after Prosecutor Stacy Gooding, who is representing the Government of United States, closed the case involving a former member of the Guyana Police Force (GPF), she this morning accused Attorney-at- law Darren Wade of using delay tactics to stall the trial.
Shawn Neblett is wanted by the United States Government in relation to trafficking narcotics through the Cheddi Jagan International Airport. Neblett who remains on remand is facing extradition hearing before Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

This morning when the matter was called, attorney-at-law Darren Wade told the court that he filed a High Court action for the extradition hearing to go before the Chief Justice for her to determined the outcome of the matter.

Goodings, upon hearing what Wade said stated,” The defense is using delay tactics and he had enough time to present his case. The Magistrate has not yet ruled on the matter and the defense know that after a ruling, they have 15 days to file an appeal.”

The Magistrate, after listening to both sides, adjourned the matter until April 8,2020.
On February 2nd, 2017, police issued a wanted bulletin for Shawn Neblett in connection with trafficking in narcotics through the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri.

However, Neblett who had been evading the police, was arrested on May 7, 2019 at Moleson Creek, Berbice, while illegally attempting to cross over to Suriname.
