BANGKOK – A Criminal Court in Bangkok has ordered the extradition of Canadian National Matthew Alexander McGowan to the United States to face an alleged murder charge there.

Earlier, prosecutors told the court that Mr McGowan was charged with murder with a gun in Florida in September 2017 the Bangkok Post reported.

The Criminal Court approved the extradition, citing three reasons — the alleged crime carried a jail term of at least one year under Thai law, both countries have their extradition treaty and the statute of limitation of the case has not expired.

Canadian Matthew Alexander McGowan is brought to the Criminal Court in Bangkok on Thursday to hear his extradition order.

Mr McGowan was brought to the Criminal Court on Thursday from the Bangkok Remand Prison where he had been detained since his US-requested arrest in November last year. The suspect had opposed the extradition.

As McGowan did not give his consent to be extradited to the US, the authorities detained him while requesting the Thai court considered the extradition case.

According to The Nation US prosecutors said a bullet, reportedly matching those used in the murder, was found in McGowan’s car and CCTV showed the car arriving at the murder scene.

McGowan has the right to appeal against the extradition order in 30 days.
