Amidst whoops of joy at OCT central, the following information was just received in response to my inquiry to the United States Embassy in the Dominican Republic:
Please be advised that based on the information we have from the Dominican authorities, Mr. Smith is not facing extradition.
If we can be of further assistance do not hesitate to contact us.
