Ex-Libyan PM loses last Tunisia extradition appeal
Tunis: Tunisia`s Appeals Court has upheld the extradition of Libya`s former prime minister exhausting the appeals process.
Following the late Friday decision, Al-Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi can now be sent back to Libya, pending the approval of Tunisia`s government and President.
Al-Mahmoudi was convicted of illegally crossing into Tunisia and imprisoned there in September, but the conviction was later overturned.
Libyan authorities, however, then requested his extradition.
His lawyers allege he would be in mortal danger if he returned to Libya, where rebels overthrew his government in August.
Tunisia`s interim government has just stepped down and a new one is in the process of being formed by the newly-elected assembly.
