International Fugitive Held After Taking Holiday In Barbados

 An international fugitive being sought for rape has been apprehended after taking a holiday break in Barbados.

According to reports out of Miami, the 54-year-old Amaro Rodrigues was vacationing in the Caribbean island when he was identified by authorities there as a fugitive of France.

They notified the United States Department of State that Mr Rodrigues would be travelling to the United States. When he attempted to transit through the US en route to his home in Canada US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Miami International Airport intercepted him.

Mr. Rodrigues was the subject of an Interpol Warrant, charging him with rape and attempted rate.

He was returned to France in keeping with a 1996 Bilateral Extradition Treaty between the United States and France, to face the charges.
