U.S. Ambassador highlights Professionalism of Cabo Verde’s Legal System in Alex Saab Case

Praia, Oct 18 (Inforpress) – The U.S. Ambassador to Cabo Verde, Jeff Daigle, highlighted the “professionalism” demonstrated by Cabo Verde’s legal system throughout a “complex judicial process”, involving Venezuelan Alex Saab.

In a statement sent to Inforpress, the diplomat confirmed that Alex Saab was transferred to U.S. custody on October 16 for extradition to the United States.

According to him, the transfer was conducted in full compliance with Cabo Verdean law and with judicial decisions, being the culmination of a very complex and time-consuming judicial process, involving several appeals that have now come to an end.

As he pointed out, in the United States the process became even more challenging by the “well documented and aggressive” disinformation campaign, which, in his view, sought to influence the judicial process, influence public opinion and blacken Cabo Verde’s international reputation.
