Tunisia's decision to extradite Libya's former prime minister Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi back to his home country is definitive, Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali told AFP on Friday.
"The decision to hand over Mr. Mahmoudi is irrevocable," he said, without providing a date for the extradition of the former premier, a stalwart of slain Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's fallen regime.

Libyan authorities have guaranteed that former premier will get a fair trial, meeting Tunisia's final condition for his extradition, the Tunisian president's office said last month.
The presidency then said a committee of independent Tunisian political figures would be formed to oversee the extradition process and monitor promises to protect Mahmoudi's rights after his transfer to Libya.
The ex-premier is the subject of two extradition requests from Tripoli.
Tunisia's January 2011 revolution ousting strongman Zine el Abidine Ben Ali triggered the pro-democracy Arab Spring.
