TRELLIS BAY, Beef Island, VI- Nyron Erickson, who is wanted by the United States Government to face charges of conspiracy to launder monetary funds from outside the USA and unlawfully transporting the funds into the USA, has been extradited to a US jurisdiction.

The extradition comes less than two weeks after Erickson was denied permission by the Privy Council to appeal a High Court decision to have him extradited to the US.

An appeal in the High Court was already lost in August 2022, after Erickson, who had surrendered to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) on August 30, 2020, had appealed the July 1, 2021, decision of Senior Magistrate Tamia N. Richards to send the extradition case of Erickson to the Governor.

In a February 15 decision by the Privy Council’s Judicial Committee, it said: “Having considered an application for permission to appeal from a judgment of the Court of Appeal of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (British Virgin Islands) dated 11th August 2022 in the matter of Nyron Erickson (Appellant) v United States of America (Respondent) and having considered written submissions from the parties, we have agreed to report to Your Majesty as our opinion that 1) the application for permission to appeal should be REFUSED because the appeal does not raise an arguable point of law.

The Privy Council’s Judicial Committee further noted that His Majesty King Charles III was “pleased by and with the advice of His Privy Council to approve the report and to order that those charged with administering the Government of the British Virgin Islands and all others whom it may concern are to ensure that it is punctually observed and obeyed.”

Erickson taken to USVI via helicopter

Around 5:00 PM today, February 27, 2023, Mr Erickson was taken by US authorities via helicopter from Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport.

A video shared with our newsroom shows heavily armed officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) handing over Erickson to US authorities who were also heavily armed.

According to reports, Mr Erickson was transported to the US Virgin Islands (USVI) where he will join an aircraft to the US mainland.

Our news centre will bring more information as the story unfolds.

      Parents, family, and others need to speak up when their children, family, whatever that person is to you is doing wrong.

      It’s HYPOCRITICAL to call out wrong where others are concerned but encouraging your “loved one’s” foolishness including those violent music videos - YOU ALL ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

      This applies to everyone not just this matter.

    Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles,
    But the one who gathers by labor increases it.

    Matthew 6:19-21; 24

    Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

    No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
