Officials of the United Kingdom (UK), have submitted the necessary documents needed for the extradition of British fugitive, Arthur Simpson Kent, who is alleged to have committed murder in the UK.
According to the state prosecutor , who announced this in Court, Rebecca Adjalo, the state received the deposition in the case, authenticated by judicial officials from the UK, and have subsequently forwarded it to the Ministry of Interior for the necessary action to be taken for his extradition.
Mr. Simspon Kent, who has been charged for allegedly murdering his girlfriend and their two children, was brought before a Magistrate Court a fortnight ago for extradition processes to begin, but the case was transferred to the High Court on the second hearing.
His lawyers are, however, asking the court to stand down the case, because they have been kept in the dark in the processes. They also argued that, Simpson Kent, has on several occasions, been denied access to his lawyers.
The British man, is suspected to have killed his girlfriend, an ex-soap opera star and her two children, before fleeing to Ghana.
Arthur Simpson-Kent, was pictured arriving at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra, days after he was questioned by British police in connection with the deaths.
Investigations, have revealed that Simpson-Kent (48) arrived in Ghana on December 19, 2015, six days after the former Eastenders star and her kids, were reported missing.
