Algerian citizen Mustafa Labsi, who was extradited from Slovakia to Algeria in mid-April 2010, has won, in absentia, a lawsuit he brought against the Foreigners’ Police at the Supreme Court. The verdict was announced on Tuesday, April 12.

The Supreme Court Senate overturned the decision of the District Court in Košice from April 2010, which denied Labsi's complaint against the Border and Foreigners’ Police Office in Prešov, the TASR newswire reported. It was the Border and Foreigners’ Police Office that arrested and subsequently extradited Labsi to Algeria.

Mustafa Labsi was accused by Algeria of co-operation with the international terrorist network al-Qaeda. His current status or whereabouts are unknown. The last information on Labsi dates from summer 2010, when he was reported to be incarcerated at Al-Harrash prison in Algiers. Labsi had sought asylum in Slovakia and other countries on the grounds that he would face torture and/or the death penalty in Algeria.
