Former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick arrived at the TCI Airport this morning [Jan 7], after being extradited from Brazil.

Misick was arrested in late 2012 in Brazil after leaving the TCI in March 2012.

In 2009 the TCI Governor, on the instructions of the UK Foreign Office, imposed direct rule on the TCI and the island’s administration was suspended and power was transferred to the UK-appointed Governor.

Power was handed back in November 2012, with the Progressive National Party [PNP] winning the Turks and Caicos General Election.

A statement issued this morning by the TCI Governor’s office said: “The UK Government welcomes the arrival of former Premier Michael Misick in Turks and Caicos Islands to face a number of serious charges relating to corruption and maladministration during his time in office. They are most grateful to the Brazilian authorities for their swift handling of TCI’s extradition request.

“It is important for the people of TCI, a UK Overseas Territory, that the rule of law is respected and due process is followed. It will now be down to the TCI Courts to consider Michael Misick’s case as well as that of 14 others charged with similar offences.”
