BELGIUM-USA: Viewpoint: Possible Extradition of Nizar Trabelsi to the United States: Another Act of W.ar? by Luk Vervaet, a teacher in prisons

"In the case of the demand made by the United States federal judge Alan Kaye for the extradition of Nizar Trabelsi issued on 16 November 2007, three years of legal interventions by his lawyers, Fernande Motte-Deraedt, Marc Neve and Chantal Morreau, have failed to convince the Belgian authorities to refuse the American's extradition request. The final decision is now in the hands of the justice minister in Belgium's temporary government, the Christian-democrat Stefan Declerck. While Declerck continues to negotiate with his American counterpart, it seems likely that he will rule that the issue of Trabelsi does not fall under the remit of 'current affairs'. While Trabelsi continues his anxious wait in a prison cell, is seems most likely that Declerck will pass his case on to the new justice minister in the new government."
