A former Las Vegas poker dealer who was jailed for extortion in an alleged murder case could be extradited to the USA.
Essam Eid was sentenced to six years in an Irish jail after demanding €100,000 from the son of a wealthy businessman in return for not killing him, his brother and his father. Eid had been hired by Sharon Collins to find a hitman to kill PJ Howard, and his two sons, Robert and Niall, in 2006. Eid tried to extort cash from Howard and his family in return for not going through with the hit. The Egyptian-born businessman is now wanted by US authorities in connection with charges relating to a conspiracy with his former partner to extort money from a woman and intent to extort money with a threat to kill. According to a report in the Irish Times the charges relate to an incident in Los Angeles dating back to September 2006.Eid will return to court in Dublin tomorrow.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
