Bosnia court denies Tunisia’s request to hand over suspected terrorist

A Bosnian court on Thursday rejected a Tunisian request to hand over a Bosnian man over his alleged role in the 2016 killing of a Tunisian drone expert who was a member of Hamas. The court concluded that Elvir Sarac, who was arrested this week on Interpol’s red warrant, could not be extradited to Tunisia because the two countries have no bilateral treaty. Mohammed Zouari, a 49-year-old aerospace engineer and drone expert, was shot dead in December 2016 near the city of Sfax. Ten Tunisians were arrested after for the assassination, but two foreigners suspected of plotting it escaped.

    One might believe that Tunisia is a normal, or possibly even a civilized country.

    Hell, no! Regrettably in 2017 a handful of men were arrested for eating in public during Ramadan, they were convicted of committing “a provocative act of public indecency” and sentenced to month-long jail sentences. The state in Tunisia has a role as a “guardian of religion” which was used to justify the arrests.

    As Salaam Alaikum dear friends of Hamas!

    Make no mistake, our fighter Mohammed Zouari died like a hero, with 36 virgins to serve him, this is because of the testicle lost with the occasion of a failed landing, the drone banged him hard right under the belt.
    But, our victory over Israel is now guaranteed, because we have good kite engineer in replacement.
