JACKSON — British authorities are seeking extradition of a man in Mississippi on charges of sexually abusing a young girl in 1988.

U.S. District Court records say Barry Willoughby, 45, was taken into custody in Biloxi, Miss., on Oct. 17 on a warrant from Bradford, England, for charges of indecent assault and gross indecency with a child.

John Weber, Willoughby’s lawyer, says Willoughby maintains his innocence. Weber says Willoughby is a British subject living legally in Mississippi.

Willoughby is being held pending a Nov. 15 extradition hearing in federal court in Gulfport.

The hearing will determine whether there is sufficient evidence to sustain the charge and whether it is an extraditable offense.

The case would then go the State Department for a final decision on whether Willoughby would be returned to Britain.”

FG seeks order to extradite suspected Internet fraudster to U.S.

April 24, 2012

Vanguard on April 24, 2012 released the following:

“Lagos- The Federal Government is seeking extradition of a suspected fraudster, Olaniyi Jones, to the U.S. in connection with an Internet fraud, estimated at $3.2 million.

Nigeria’s Attorney-General and Minister of Justice on Monday, filed an application for the order of the Federal High Court to extradite Jones to the New Jersey District Court in the U.S, to face a 10-count charge of conspiracy and Internet fraud.

Jones and some other people in the U.S. were accused of specialising in using fake employees to collect money from companies through the Internet.

He was arrested at the premises of an Eco Bank branch in Akure by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The extradition was based on a request to the Federal Government by the U.S. Embassy in Abuja.

When the case was mentioned before Justice John Tsoho in Lagos, Jones’s counsel, Mr Akin Olatunji, made an oral application for his client to be granted bail.

He noted that Jones had earlier been arraigned before an Akure High Court on the same subject matter.

However, prosecution counsel, Mr Mohammed Hassan, urged the court to reject the application.

Hassan said that Jones would jump bail, if granted bail.

The court adjourned further hearing in the case till May 25. (NAN)”
