After completing a prison sentence in the Turks and Caicos Islands, a Canadian man is being extradited to the U.S. to face human smuggling charges

that Srikajamukan Chelliah, a Sri Lanka-born Canadian citizen, was flown to the U.S. on Monday following an extradition request from the American government.

The boat was carrying 158 passengers, including 28 Sri Lankans and one Indian who the RT&CIPF says were being smuggled. Chelliah was on the boat too, and soon found himself facing charges of illegal entry and assisting illegal entry. Trevor Botting, the commissioner of the RT&CIPF, said in a statement that the investigation into Chelliah and the others on the sailboat "was one of, if not the, largest and most complex criminal investigations ever undertaken" by the agency, also resulting in arrests in Canada, the U.S. and Sri Lanka.
