BEIRUT: Lebanon will extradite Saudi national Abdullah Ben Mohammad Bishi, having served his full term for his role as Fatah al-Islam's jurisprudent leader, a judicial source said Monday.
The source told The Daily Star that Bishi’s seven-year sentence comes to a close at the end of May.
Under Lebanese law, a prisoner is returned home after completing their full jail term.
Lebanese authorities will hand over Bishi to the Saudi Embassy, which will handle his extradition, the source added.
Bishi was convicted for his role in the deadly battle between Fatah al-Islam and the Lebanese Army at the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared in 2007.
