Court of Appeal Dismisses Leroy King’s Latest Appeal to Block His Extradition


The Court of Appeal today dismissed an application by Leroy King to take his fight against his extradition to the Judicial Committee of Privy Council.

King is wanted in the United States on 11 fraud related charges stemming from the seven billion US dollar Ponzi scheme carried out by the disgraced American billionaire, former financier and banker Allen Stanford.

The former Chief of the Financial Services Regulatory Commission, (FSRC) was seeking leave to Her Majesty in Council to appeal a decision given by the Court of Appeal last year.

That decision dismissed King’s appeal of a trial judge’s decision to refuse to grant leave to bring judicial review proceedings challenging his extradition.

In its decision today, the Court of Appeal said King’s application did not meet specific requirements set out in the section 122 of the constitution, which deals with appeals to Her Majesty in Council.

King’s lawyer reportedly said he intends to make his application for leave directly to the London-based Privy Council.

King was briefly detained last year after the Court of Appeal dismissed his appeal against the previous High Court decision.

However, a High Court Judge halted the extradition given King the opportunity to file the application that was dismissed today.

  1. Allen Stanford is awaiting your company. Stop wasting the courts time. I hope the US Marshalls pick you up soon

  2. How can a lawyer fight a matter brought by the state yet in another matter he represent the state? Is this lawyer just a big game?


    You are absolutely right ‘AFP.’

    As long as there has be no conflict or unethical behavior, it has never been about who the attorney represents.

    Sure that ‘…In Another Matter,’ it has nothing to do with ‘…Leroy King’s Court battles against extradition.’

    When ‘…Options and Resources’ are available, those that value ‘…their liberty’ shall exhaust all possible options until resources evaporate.

    Guess that is part of what the fight for liberty is all about.

    Though much better than what currently exists here, in this case, ‘…in avoiding incarceration in a foreign penitentiary.’

  4. WHY is this guy still here? The US Marshalls just need to pick him up. It’s time. Justice will be done. Nothing to fear. Only the guilty need to be fearful. Again, WHY is this guy still here?

  5. Wow! Wow! What is this with the Leroy King story?
    One hoping to make as muchhh chic chin-ching $$$$$ out of it and the other buying time to see if he will fade into the sunset before all options run out?
    Should have remembered that greed and selfishness have prices/consequences.

    • He need to leave the money for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren college/university fund and go keep his buddy Stanford company. Greed and selfishness have deep consequences.
