Looking to fly to Cuba from New Jersey? Not so fast.
Gov. Chris Christie has requested that all airline routes between Newark Liberty International Airport and Cuba be barred until escaped fugitive Joanne Chesimard, who is currently living on the island, is transferred back to the United States, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Chesimard was convicted for killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973 but escaped custody and was granted political asylum in Cuba.
"It is unacceptable to me as governor to have any flights between New Jersey and Cuba until and unless convicted cop-killer and escaped fugitive Joanne Chesimard is returned to New Jersey to face justice," Christie wrote in a letter to Port Authority Chairman John Degnan on Tuesday, according to the Journal.
Degnan told the Journal that Port Authority officials will review a request from United to create a route between Newark and Cuba.
