Ex-Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Mahmoudi

The Tunisian Court of Appeals announced it will be extraditing Baghdadi Mahmoudi, the former Prime Minister of Libya under deposed leader Muammar Gaddafi. Mahmoudi was arrested in Tunisia at the end of September.

“The court has decided to extradite Mr. Mahmoudi to the Libyan authorities,” confirmed Mabrouk Korchid, Mahmoudi’s lawyer.

Korchid has publicly stated throughout the proceedings that Mahmoudi’s case was a human rights issue as he would not be accorded a fair trial in Libya.

“It’s an unfair decision, a political decision. If any harm comes to him in Libya, the Tunisian justice system will be a party to that,” Korchid told Reuters news agency after the court rendered its decision.

The lawyer told Tunisia Live he is planning on appealing the decision, though he did not yet have a timetable for this process.
