Tunisia Extradites Former Qaddafi Prime Minister to Libya

June 24, 2012

Tunisia extradited the former Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi, detained since the end of September in the country, to neighboring Libya, Bachir al-Sid, his lawyer, said today by phone.

Al-Mahmoudi was received by Libyan authorities and was being held in a prison belonging to the Justice Ministry and under the supervision of the judiciary police, Libyan Prime Minister Abdelrahim El Keib said today at a press conference.

Adnan Mnasser, a spokesman for the presidency, earlier said by phone that “the president did not sign the decree of delivery.” Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali had said that the extradition was not conditional on the signature of the president.
