Jewish Museum Murder Suspect Extradited to Belgium

Jewish Museum Murder Suspect Extradited to Belgium

On June 25 a French court ordered Jewish Museum murder suspect Mehdi Nemmouche to be extradited to Brussels, Belgium.

Nemmouche is the suspect in the incident where “four people were fatally shot in [an May 24] attack, in broad daylight in the heart of the Belgian capital.”

Prior to this, according to BBC News, Nemmouche “had spent a year fighting with Islamists in Syria.”

His lawyer fought the extradition order, for fear that “once [Nemmouche] is sent to Belgium, he will be extradited to Israel.”

His lawyer said, “My client will certainly appeal to the Court of Cassation (France’s top criminal court) because he is not satisfied with this decision.”
