Supreme Court quashes decision allowing extradition of three to US

23-06-2015

The Supreme Court in Prague has quashed a decision on the admissibility of the extradition to the United States of three men wanted on charges of collaborating with terrorists. The news was relayed to the Czech News Agency by a spokesperson for the Prague Municipal Court, which had agreed to the extradition in April. The Supreme Court upheld complaints from the accused, who said the US had not provided sufficient guarantees they would not be subject to inhumane treatment. The Municipal Court must now request specification from the US authorities. The US says the three – two are from the Ivory Coast and the other is Lebanon-born with Ukrainian citizenship – attempted to sell weapons and cocaine to its agents posing as Colombian FARC rebels.
