Toronto, May 31

A former Canadian soldier and alleged hitman has been extradited to Thailand where he has been charged with the murder of an Indian-origin gangster in Phuket last year, media reports said.

Matthew Dupre, 38, who allegedly gunned down Jimi 'Slice' Sandhu in February 2022, arrived in Bangkok on a special air force flight on Sunday night, The Bangkok Post reported.

Sandhu, who grew up in Abbotsford, was connected to the United Nation Gang, which was founded in the Fraser Valley in 1997.

On February 11, 2022, the Phuket court issued a warrant for the arrest of Dupre and his alleged accomplice on charges of premeditated murder, having guns and ammunition in possession without permission and illegally carrying and using the guns in public.

A police investigation later found the two suspects left Thailand for Canada on February 6, the report said.

Dupre was arrested on February 20, 2022 by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at his home in Sylvan Lake, Alberta.

His extradition was approved last December by the Court of Alberta, Edmonton.

The second wanted suspect killer in the case died in a small-plane crash in Canada in May 2022.

Dupre denied all the charges against him, media reports said citing police officials.
