The offenses are alleged to have occurred between May 4th to July 26th 2006 in Canada. Police say Neverson had been hiding out in Sealots, Port-of-Spain and members of local Interpol began investigations since they it was believed Neverson was hiding in Trinidad and Tobago evading authorities.

Chief Magistrate, Marcia Ayers-Caesar issued the directive on Tuesday in the Port-of-Spain 8th Magistrates’ Court that Neverson be returned to Canada to answer the charges.

He was remanded into custody without bail and was advised of his right to appeal the order within fifteen days.
