Jordan Refuses to Extradite Woman Convicted of Jerusalem Bombing to US

AMMAN Ė Jordanís court of cassation upheld on Monday the ruling of the countryís appeal court not to extradite Jordanian woman, Ahlam Tamimi, to the United States.

Tamimi is accused of being involved in a bombing attack in a restaurant in Jerusalem in 2001, when 15 people, including two US nationals, were killed.

The court of cassation, Jordanís highest tribunal, justified the ruling by specifying that there is no effective treaty between the two countries to hand over criminals, according to a judicial official quoted by Jordanian news agency Petra.

Both countries have signed an extradition agreement, but the Jordanian parliament has not yet approved it, so the agreement is not in force, according to the official.

Tamimi was sentenced to life imprisonment by Israeli judiciary in 2003, but she was released in 2011 as part of a prisoner swap between Israel and Hamas.
