Norwegian police last Friday arrested a 59-year-old Norwegian wanted for attempted murder, in the waters off Chaguaramas in Trindad & Tobago and escorted him back to his homeland.
The police in Trinidad & Tobago said the man attempted to murder a fellow sailor on board a yacht in the Atlantic Ocean, in July, north of French Guiana and east of Trinidad.
Trinidad Express sources said the suspect was taken out of Trinidad & Tobago on Friday afternoon, accompanied by the officers of Norway's National Criminal Investigation Service.
Following the alleged incident on July 27, the suspect sailed into Trinidad & Tobago waters and the T&T Coast Guard escorted him to Chaguaramas due to damage to his yacht, in which he had been living for the last month.
Coast Guard and police intelligence sources said the suspect was not detained, even after authorities learned of the alleged attempted murder since Trinidad & Tobago does not have an extradition or Mutual Legal Assistance pact with Norway.
