Cassation Court rejects extraditing Tamimi to USA authorities

Cassation Court rejects extraditing Tamimi to USA authorities

Jordan's Supreme Court on Monday ruled against the extradition of a woman placed on the US Federal Bureau of Investigation's "Most Wanted Terrorist" list.

Jordan's highest court has blocked the extradition of a Jordanian woman who faces US charges in the 2001 bombing of a Jerusalem pizza restaurant that killed 15 people, including two Americans.

Drack is apparently the alien equivalent of a Facebook uncle who won't stop posting low-resolution photos of his gun collection. It's a story where a literal galaxy is on the line, so turning the dialogue up to the proverbial eleven didn't jarr to me.

The court upheld a ruling that had been previously issued by an appeals court, the official Petra news agency reported. According to a Jordanian legal expert, the U.S. and Jordan signed an extradition agreement in 1995, but it was never approved by the Jordanian parliament and is therefore not valid.

The treaty is therefore "unenforceable", said the source, who the news agency refrained from identifying. The source added that criminals are not extradited to another country as long as the relevant extradition treaty "is not effective". The bomb killed 15, including two Americans, and wounded another 122.
