The Netherlands: Terror suspect extradition in doubt

13-02-2013

Dutch News:

Dutch-Pakistani terror suspect Sabir K will not be extradited to the US unless the American authorities agree to treat him for his psychological problems, justice minister Ivo Opstelten said on Tuesday.

Medical experts say the 26-year-old is suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome and depression.

Sabir K lost his appeal against extradition to the US in April 2012, but the final decision rests with Opstelten, who is studying court reports and comments by K's lawyer.

According to the US, K worked with the al-Quadeda terror group in planning attacks.

The authorities there have not yet received K's medical reports on his treatment in the Netherlands because K is refusing permission to send them.
