Samir Handal has been freed from a Turkish repatriation centre and returned to the United States, one of his lawyers said on Saturday. Businessman Samir Handal, was detained on an Interpol red notice as he transited through Turkey on his way from the United States to Jordan last November. His lawyers said the red notice was later suspended at their request pending a final review and a Turkish court rejected Haiti’s extradition request for Handal on July 4, ruling he should be released.
