Guyanese businessman Peter Morgan will soon be slapped with charges in the US court after being extradited from Trinidad and Tobago. Morgan was extradited after withdrawing his appeal. The drug suspect was arrested at the Piarco International Airport on March 9 while in-transit to Guyana. Trinidad police executed a provisional warrant for his arrest on conspiracy charges to smuggle illegal drugs into New York. He had been denied bail since his arrest in trinidad. According to one of the charges, Morgan knowingly and intentionally conspired with David Narine, Susan Narine, Hung-Fung Mar and other persons unknown, to traffic in cocaine by importation. He faces jail terms of ten years to life imprisonment if convicted.
