Tunisia: International Arrest warrant for Ben Ali's family

Some of his family went to Canada where they have houses and are legal residents.

Quote:
Even though the Tunisian authorities have issued an arrest warrent for Trabelsi and his wife, they may be staying in Canada for a long time yet. They are legal residents of the country and have been since the '90s. Until the bureaucratic wheels turn, no movement to send him or his family back to Tunisia will be made. Even if he and his wife have violated the terms of residency, they may still claim refugee status. The hearings and adjudications for that would probably take years to sort out
I hope that Canada will send them back and make sure they get judge in their country for what they did. But it is going to happen? Is Canada will take the proper mesures? Being legal resident shouldn't give protection against those kind of accustions...

First of all, everything depends on whether Tunisia and Canada have an extradition treaty (in force NOW). If not, only crimes committed in Canada could be the basis of an extradition.

Second, Mr Trabelsi of course is NOT the brother of the President, but the brother-in-law (brother of MRS Ben Ali).

I expect them to stay in Canada until becoming Canadian citizens and then as "Canadians" depart to Southern France or Coastal Spain.
