On March 13, a panel of judges of the Constitutional Court put a hold on the Supreme Court's order to extradite Mustapha Labsi to Algeria for criminal prosecution, court spokeswoman Viera Horniaková confirmed.

The Supreme Court heard the case after the Bratislava Regional Court ruled on November 30, 2007 that Labsi should be extradited. His attorney appealed the verdict. Algeria asked Slovakia to extradite Labsi, who has already been given a life sentence by an Algerian court. He was also sentenced to five years in jail in France, in March 2006, for planning terrorist attacks and forging official identification documents. SITA
