Justice Navindra Singh on Thursday ruled that there is sufficient evidence against Troy Thomas to warrant his extradition to the United States of America, where he is wanted in connection with two criminal matters.
In addition, Thomas was ordered to pay $450,000 in court costs.
Justice Singh has accordingly dismissed an application by Thomas, a prisoner, in which he sought to challenge his “illegal” confinement.
Thomas has been accused of murdering Keith Frank, 20, a Guyanese who was shot and killed on December 11, 2011 outside a Richmond Hill, New York party. He has also been accused of inflicting injuries upon Dr. Katherine Maloney.
In June 2012, a US judge issued a warrant for his arrest in the name of Troy Thomas.
Since 2012, authorities in the United States had issued a wanted bulletin for the murder suspect.
Following a hearing in 2018, Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus had ordered Thomas extradited to the USA to face the charges levelled against him.
