SUBJECT: DOMINICAN FUGITIVE PORFIRIO HERNANDEZ WAIVES
EXTRADITION RIGHTS, RETURNS TO U.S.




1. On January 13, 2005, U.S. Marshals returned Porfirio
Hernandez to the United States for trial in the Southern
District of New York based on federal indictment number
02-CR-1270, charging conspiracy to defraud the United States,
bank fraud, and aiding and abetting bank fraud.



2. Following a May 24, 2004, U.S. extradition request and the
subsequent issuance of a Dominican arrest warrant, Hernandez
was apprehended on January 9. 2006, by agents of the
Dominican National Directorate for Drug Control's Fugitive
Unit. Hernandez subsequently made a free, knowing, and
voluntary waiver of further local proceedings before the
Criminal Chamber of the Dominican Supreme Court. His
decision to freely submit to U.S. extradition was evidenced
by a witnessed, notarized affidavit.



3. Hernandez is the 1st fugitive extradited to the United
States during calendar year 2006 and the 11th to be
extradited during FY-2006.
