Do Kwon Will Not Go to U.S. as Montenegro Revokes Extradition

Will they or won’t they? The Montenegro Court of Appeals has revoked its agreement that would have allowed the U.S. to extradite former TerraForm Labs CEO Do Kwon, according to a statement issued by the court.

The decision to extradite Kwon was originally made by the High Court of Podgorica in early December. But a few weeks later, his lawyers filed an appeal and he was allowed to stay in Montenegro while the appellate court heard the case.

The court decided that the original decision to extradite Kwon was “affected by significant violations,” according to a translated copy of the news release, “because the wording of the decision is incomprehensible, the decisions has no reason for decisive facts, and the reasons given are unclear.”

The statement went on to say that the lower court ignored the order of arrival of the requests for extradition, implying that South Korea was the first to seek extradition of Kwon.
