 After waiting for several months for a decision to extradite US Fugitive to Tonga, the Minister of Police Hon. Dr. Pohiva Tu’i’onetoa reported to parliament that a Honolulu Court in Hawaii, has ruled in our favour.

Dr. Pohiva Tu’i’onetoa told Parliament this morning, that Dean Jay Fletcher will finally be extradited to the Kingdom.

He says, they have requested the US authorities to assist with the return of this former Soldier.

Fletcher will be tried in Tonga for the accused murder of his wife in their yacht while docking in Vava’u last year.

The Minister also says Police officers who worked at the night that Fletcher escaped from their custody will appear at a Police Tribunal on the 15th of this month.
