German media reported on July 13 that a bodyguard of the late Osama bin Laden, formerly listed as terrorist number one in the world, was transported from a German deportation prison to an airport and sent to Tunisia, where he was handed over to local authorities.

The Administrative Court of Gelsenkirchen in North Rhine-Westphalia blasted the deportation of former Osama bin Laden bodyguard Sami A. as “grossly unlawful” and “violating basic principles of the rule of law” in its latest resolution regarding the case. The resolution also prescribes the return of Sami A. back to Germany by the foreign authorities as the Tunisian government hasn’t issued assurances that deceased terrorist’s bodyguard won’t be subjected to torture.

So far it is unclear whether Tunisian authorities intend to return Sami A. and whether German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees will be pushing them to do so, as no official statements were made in regards to the court’s resolution.
