The Gleaner on July 9, 2011 released the following:
“Glenroy Sinclair, Assignment Coordinator
HEAD OF the Criminal Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, and his team are now busy wrapping up their preliminary investigation before drafting a provisional warrant for the United States to extradite the driver of the BMW X6 implicated in the murder of Kingston College schoolboy, Khajeel Mais.
This is because fresh information has suggested that the BMW X6 driver is a US citizen.
“We have that information, but before we can do anything, we have to complete our file and then draft a provisional warrant,” Powell told The Gleaner yesterday.
A provisional arrest request is an urgent petition to arrest a person pending receipt of an extradition request. It may be appropriate when it is believed that the fugitive may flee the jurisdiction.
There are allegations that prior to the shooting, the X6 driver had originally planned to leave the island on Monday, July 4, which is Independence Day in the United States. But immediately after the shooting, he reportedly purchased another ticket and departed the following day to New York.
The Gleaner understands he has an original address in Florida, and the police, with their overseas counterparts, are now probing his whereabouts.
Mais, 17, was gunned down last Friday. He was a passenger in a taxi which collided with a BMW X6 on Highland Drive, St Andrew.”
