France won’t extradite fugitive pilots to Dominican Republic
Santo Domingo.- French government spokesman Stephane Le Foll on Wednesday said his country will not extradite to the Dominican Republic the two French pilots who are convicted of drug trafficking and who fled last week.
Interviewed by RTL Radio Le Foll said French legislation bars extradition of its nationals, after Dominican Republic the Attorney General announced Tuesday that it will issue an international arrest warrant against Pascal Fauret and Bruno Odos, who are now in France.
“We don’t extradite French citizens when they are in our territory,” the spokesperson said, adding that “we are a great country, we respect the law.”
He decline a response when asked of a possible arrest of Fauret and Odos, sentenced to a 20 years in prison for drug trafficking and who were released while they appealed the case.
He noted however of possible charges since French courts have opened an investigation as the result of the insolvent of the pilots.
