Justice: Egypt to extradite former Libyan regime officials

Tripoli, Libya - All officials and supporters of Libya's fallen regime residing in Egypt are to be extradited to Libya as soon as Tripoli fulfills the required legal conditions, Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan said.

He told journalists here Tuesday that he received the necessary guarantees to this effect from the Egyptian authorities during his three-day visit to Cairo last week.

'Egypt will not allow any personality to carry out activities from its soil against another state,' he said, recalling that while he was in exile in Egypt, the authorities did not allow him to fight former Libyan leader Mouammar Kadhafi.

The Prime Minister said his country's Legal Attaché is in Cairo to follow up on the extradition matter.
