The government of Serbia has extradited a Bahraini man convicted of terrorism-related offensive following an Interpol Red Notice at Bahrain’s request.
Bahrain’s Interior Ministry said on Tuesday that Ahmed Jaffar Mohammed Ali, 49, was repatriated on Monday.
The extradition of Ali, who was sentenced to three life terms and 10 years of detention for terrorism-related offenses between 2012 and 2015, sparked criticism among the human rights defender.
The London-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) said that Ali should have not been extradited rather he should be further investigated for his crime.
Meanwhile, Bahrain’s Interior Ministry in a statement said that Ali was extradited after coordination and communication with Serbia, a “friendly” country.
The ministry furthered that Ali had previously been a fugitive in Iran.
Ali was sentenced to life in prison for his involvement in a bomb attack that killed three policemen in 2014 in the village of Al Daih, located in the north of Bahrain.
