United Nations gangster ordered returned to Canada to face murder charge
For 12 years, United Nations gangster Conor D’Monte has avoided a B.C. courtroom on charges he was involved in the 2009 murder of rival Red Scorpion Kevin LeClair.
But D’Monte may soon be on his way back to Vancouver after a judge in Puerto Rico ordered his extradition on Thursday.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Marshal D. Morgan said in the four-page ruling that Canada had filed material in the case against D’Monte that met the threshold for extradition based on the treaty between the two countries.
“There is probable cause to believe that the fugitive before this court, the same person identified in the extradition request from the Government of Canada, committed the offences for which extradition is sought,” Morgan said. “The evidence before this court is sufficient to justify the fugitive’s committal for trial on felony charges.”
D’Monte was arrested a year ago in a San Juan suburb where he had been living under a fake name and purported to be a wealthy philanthropist.
