Tunisia's Justice Ministry says it will extradite former Libyan Prime Minister Al-Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi _ currently being held in Tunis _ back to Libya.
Official Mondher Bedhiafi told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Al-Mahmoudi's extradition will take place in the coming weeks.
Al-Mahmoudi was arrested last September in southern Tunisia for crossing the border, en route to Algeria, without permission from Tunisian authorities.
Several international organizations including Human Rights Watch have spoken out against the extradition because of the perceived risks involved.
Al-Mahmoudi was the last head of government under former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who was killed last year.
