Brussels shooting suspect opposes extradition

Medhi Nemmouche, a French national suspected of shooting dead three people in the Brussels Jewish Museum, is formally opposing extradition to Belgium.

The 29-year old’s decision to contest the European arrest warrant is likely to prolong the extradition process.

His lawyer argues there is no proof Nemmouche is the shooter and says he should remain in France to be tried, since he is a French national.
