Moncef el Materi might be extradited to Tunisia shortly (Justice Ministry)

Moncef el Materi, father of Sakhr el Materi, the son-in-law of former President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali, might be extradited to Tunisia shortly, a source of the Justice Ministry told TAP on Thursday.

Arrived in France in 2011, Moncef el Materi (83 years old) was arrested on June 10 at the port of Marseille, following a check of papers at the time of his descent from a cruise ship. He was the subject of an international arrest warrant issued by Tunisia.

“The French justice ruled on February 7 in favour of the extradition of Moncef el Materi to Tunisia. In France, the investigating chamber of the Court of Appeal will give its final decision on February 28,” the Justice source said.

The investigating judge at the Tunis Court of First Instance issued in 2011 an international warrant against Moncef el Materi.

Moncef el Materi is prosecuted in Tunisia for money laundering and using the facilities provided by his kinship ties to obtain property, markets, real estate and commercial projects without respecting the legal and administrative procedures in force.
