A Saint Lucian national is expected to be extradited to Martinique in the coming days to answer murder charges.

Details surrounding the process are unclear, however, the incident occurred in 2017.

Loop News sought comment from the chambers of the Attorney General on the matter but was told they could not disclose any information to the media.

While a gag order has been placed over the incident, Loop News was able to confirm that the individual, a Morne d'Or resident, was among five individuals who were arrested on Thursday, June 4, 2020.

The Gros Islet Police arrested them for breach of curfew under the State of Emergency at about 2 am.

The other individuals are said to be from the community of Jacmel.
