Iraqi refugee Zeyad al-Dolaee, charged by Iraqi authorities with terrorist activity, was extradited to his home country Wednesday despite attempts to persuade Lebanese authorities to deny the Iraqi authorities' request. The extradition has come under fire from international organizations, which claim that the extradition is a violation of the United Nations Convention against Torture. Following this interview, Dolaee was apprehended by Army Intelligence, who had received information from Iraqi authorities that he was allegedly involved in terrorist activity.Authorities subsequently received an extradition request from Iraq, calling for Dolaee's return after the full completion of his sentence.Judge Nazek al-Khatib, liaison officer for anti-torture cases at the Justice Ministry, told The Daily Star that Dolaee's extradition did not violate UNCAT.
