TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia will extradite former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's prime minister to Libya and the handover could take place in "days or weeks", Tunisia's Justice Minister Noureddine Bouheiri said on Tuesday.
A Tunisian court dropped charges of illegally entering the country against Al Baghdadi Ali Al-Mahmoudi in February but he has remained in jail since last year, pending a decision on his extradition to Libya.
"The government has decided to hand over Mahmoudi and all that remains is the completion of some organizational issues," Bouheiri told Reuters in an interview.
"This could be within days or weeks or perhaps longer... Our Libyan brothers have pledged to respect Mahmoudi physically and emotionally and to give him a fair trial," he said.
