Germany: Tunisian man linked to Bardo attack put on extradition shortlist
Frankfort administration court has allowed the man’s deportation but on condition that Tunisian authorities prove that he will not be subject to torture or handed death penalty, reports say.
Identified as Haykel S., the 36-year old arrived in Germany in 2015 to seek asylum.
In August last year, Tunisian authorities filed an application for his deportation over his alleged involvement in Tunis Bardo Museum attack and the Ben Guerdane attack which left respectively 21 and 20 dead.
The extradition request was then turned down for lack of tangible guarantee, reports say.
Few months later, Haykel S. came again under the German police radar for allegedly recruiting terrorists for the Islamic State group. He is also accused of facilitating terrorist attacks in Germany.
In March, Frankfort judicial authorities ruled for his deportation but he countered the court ruling as he applied for asylum, but his application was rejected by the administrative court.
