Budapest Court Approves Belgian-Moroccan Terrorist Suspect’s Extradition


The Budapest Municipal Court on Friday approved the extradition to Belgian authorities of a Belgian-Moroccan woman wanted on suspicion of terrorism, the court’s press department said in a statement.


The international warrant under which the woman was arrested had been issued by a French-language lower court of Brussels on charges of participation in the activities of a terrorist group and leaving the territory of the country with the intent of carrying out or supporting a terrorist act, the department said. “Based on available data, the woman can be explicitly suspected of seeking to visit a terrorist group active in a Syrian field of operation,” it said. The maximum term for crimes included in the warrant is ten years in prison, said the department. The suspect agreed in the court to her extradition in a simplified procedure which according to the ruling must follow by January 16.
