Gordon is being extradited on a provisional warrant for failure to appear for trial in the United States. Knight told the Observer that his client could not be tried in the United States on the drug charges because the warrant for his arrest relates to his failure to show for trial and not the drug charges that caused him to flee that country.I don’t understand why can’t artists follow the law so It doesn’t come back to ruin their lives later.
However, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions said that the US could still try Gordon for the alleged drug offence, but that it would have to seek leave from the Jamaican Government in order to proceed.
