Amsterdam: Lawyers say a Dutch man wanted by the US on suspicion of trying to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan and for allegedly aiding al Qaeda has appealed to the Netherlands` Supreme Court to prevent his extradition.

The 24-year-old suspect, identified under Dutch privacy laws as "Sabir K”, was indicted by a federal grand jury in New York on June 22. But his case was held behind closed doors in the Netherlands and no information about it was released until his lawyer Andre Seebregts began talking.

Sabir K, a citizen of both the Netherlands and Pakistan, claims he was mistreated in Pakistan before being deported to the Netherlands in April. He was arrested upon arrival and has been held since.
