Bahrain Mirror: Human Rights Watch's deputy Middle East director, Joe Stork, stressed that "Serbia's haste to extradite Ahmed Muhammad was simply unconscionable in light of the European human rights court injunction," adding that "this deplorable extradition underscores the need for Interpol to seriously reform its Red Notice system, which is open to abuse."
Stork went on to say that "Interpol and Serbian authorities have put a man who fled torture and life in a Bahraini prison and sought refuge in Europe at grave risk."
"It is terrifying and inexcusable that Serbia and Interpol collaborated to return a dissident to face life in prison despite the European Court of Human Rights order halting his extradition," he further stated.
