Federal prosecutors are seeking to extradite Amer Ahmad, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s former City Hall comptroller, from Pakistan, where Ahmad fled — using a fake passport — after pleading guilty last year to public corruption charges in Ohio.
Ahmad, 39, has admitted in Pakistani court that he forged documents to flea to his parents’ homeland. He remains jailed in the city of Lahore.
