The Central Authority, under the direction of Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, has successfully obtained a warrant of committal for Dutch national Amarnath Jagmohan, who is wanted on four counts of uttering forged documents and one count of possession of counterfeit currency in another jurisdiction.
Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar, in the Port-of-Spain Eighth Court, yesterday issued an order committing Jagmohan to custody to await his extradition to Singapore.
It is alleged that sometime in May 2003, Jagmohan visited several moneylenders in Singapore and attempted to change counterfeit euros for Singapore dollars. He was also found in possession of counterfeit euros.
Jagmohan was charged in Singapore but before his trial he fled the country while on bail.
He was held in T&T on January 29 this year under a provisional warrant of arrest.
