Defense of Alex Saab calls for suspension of the extradition process of the Venezuelan

Praia, 15 Feb (Inforpress) – Alex Saab’s defense lawyer announced  he has appealed to the Supreme Court of Justice to suspend the extradition process by Cabo Verde, pending a decision by the ECOWAS Court.

In a statement released on Saturday, lawyer José Pinto Monteiro, who leads the defense of Alex Saab in Cabo Verde, said the appeal was filed on Friday at the Cabo Verde Supreme Court.

“Now Cabo Verde has accepted the jurisdiction of the ECOWAS Court, as evidenced by its appearance and the oral arguments presented by its lawyer on February 5, at the main hearing, there can be no reason for the Supreme Court not to suspend the extradition process,” he said.
