FORMER Tivoli Gardens don Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke was flown out of the country at 2:05 this afternoon.

Coke left Up Park Camp at 1:33 pm in a Jamaica Defence Force helicopter which then transferred him to an aircraft at the Norman Manley International Airport.

Coke is on his way to the United States where he faces drug and gun-running charges.

Earlier today he waived his right to an extradition trial in Jamaica.

Coke had been on the run since May 24. He was captured in the company of the Reverend Al Miller on Tuesday. Miller said he was accompanying Coke to the US Embassy in Liguanea, where the fugitive wanted to turn himself in to US authorities.
