Nyron Erickson loses appeal against extradition to US

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, 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 lost his appeal against extradition.

Mr Erickson and other co-accused were also charged by the US with two counts of concealed bulk cash smuggling in amounts over $10,000 into the USA.

Appeal against decision by Magistrate Tamia N. Richards

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.

The Government of the United States had applied to extradite the appellant to the United States Virgin Islands.

Judge Richard G. Floyd on August 5, 2022, dismissed the appeal by Erickson.

Judge Floyd said the court was satisfied, for the reasons advanced, that although the appellant's constitutional right to liberty and security of the person was breached, Erickson’s detention was for the purpose of extradition, and follows the lawful procedure authorised by the 2016 Order, which is the applicable extradition legislation.

Appeal dismissed

“For all of these reasons, this ground of appeal is hereby dismissed.

"In sum, the court finds that it would not be oppressive, unjust or an abuse of process for the extradition of the appellant to proceed. For all of the reasons stated, the appeal of the decision of Senior Magistrate Tamia N. Richards, dated 30th June 2021, is hereby dismissed, pursuant to Section 104 (1) (c) of The Extradition Act 2003 (Overseas Territories) Order 2016. It necessarily follows that the order of the Governor directing the appellant's extradition remains in force and any companion appeal of that order is hereby dismissed pursuant to Section 109 (1) (b) of the same Act.”

More details to follow.

    all i going say is everybody does have dem time to shine and then whoop deh it is. let this be a lesson to all the young men out there who think that illegal activities is the way to go because it really isn't. you either going end up jail or dead. all this flossing, spending money on girls, and buying fancy boats and cars ain't worth it. stop and think your girl, parents, families and children who you will have to leave behind to suffer just because you were selfish and wanted fast money and to get rich over night. yeah you manage to accumulate couple boats, houses, girls, jewelry, cars, etc but to then give uncle sam years of your life..your freedom is taken away from you. that doesn't make any sense but for some reason, it seems like our VIs has become a breeding ground for illegal activities. it's such a shame

        It doesn't matter whether he will serve five or ten years in the u.s. What matters is that he has no protection and his a-- is all alone. I sincerely hope he wakes up and just turns his live around. You have money and material wealth, thank Jah and live clean so your works can be seen. Most criminals never know when to stop and go cold turkey,that's their biggest demise. Years later they look back and say if I could go back in time I would have just been cool and do my thing no big attention and issues with people. Anyway,this is your last chance at redemption. Do your time and come back reformed or suffer the consequences... Your choice to make... Careful... You soon reach the point of not return.....
