Nakash Extradition Approved

Justice Minister Avraham Sharir has reversed an earlier decision and signed an extradition order against William Nakash, a French Jew convicted in absentia by a French court for the 1983 murder of an Arab in Besancon, France. The Supreme Court had given Sharir until July 7 to show cause why a French extradition request should be rejected.
