ZAGREB, May 28, 2018 – The Croatian Supreme Court on Monday upheld an appeal by Bosnian national Alen Čamdžić and refused a request for his extradition to Tunisia where he is suspected of involvement as an Israeli spy in the murder of Mohammed Zawahri, a Tunisian aviation engineer with alleged ties to the Palestinian group Hamas.

The Supreme Court quashed the Velika Gorica County Court ruling of May 9 to extradite Čamdžić and ordered that he be released from custody.

Contrary to the County Court ruling, the Supreme Court concluded that “in this particular case, with regard to guarantees, the applicant country did not provide Croatia with any guarantee that the death penalty would not be imposed.”

“Even though it is without a doubt that the suspect is charged with one of the most serious crimes, when there is a risk that the suspect might be sentenced to death in the applicant country, extradition cannot be allowed,” the Supreme Court said in its ruling.
