In 1981, Biggs was kidnapped by British ex-soldiers who hoped to collect a reward for returning him to Britain.The kidnappers brought Biggs to Barbados expecting him to be extradited. However, the Barbados Supreme Court ruled that such an extradition would be unlawful as the Barbados Parliament had not ratified an extradition treaty with the UK.
