According to Tunisian website business news, the terrorist Moez Fezzani landed in Tunisia from Egypt this morning around 10:00 am on December 23..
He was immediately transferred to prison after his wife and children were also returned to Tunisia. He will be interrogated by the Tunisian anti-terrorist units and will have to answer for several accusations including his involvement in the attacks of the Bardo and Sousse, business news added.
Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera underlined recently that Fezzani, 46, had previously been captured in Pakistan in 2002. Held at the US base in Bagram, Afghanistan, he had been extradited to Italy before being sent to Tunisia, and later moving on to Libya’s war zones. Investigators from his nation sought him for the attacks at Bardo and on the beach at Sousse. As revealed last August by Corriere della Sera, according to the Libyan secret services his name is linked to a group of IS soldiers in the Milan area.
Corriere della Sera added that Fezzani’s story is linked to that of the last twenty years of terrorism: from the fight for Bosnia in former Yugoslavia to extremist organizations, from his beginnings in radical circles to the move to IS. Questioned by magistrates in Milan in 2010, he explained why he had gone to fight in the Balkans, after a period in which he trafficked in drugs: “I used to sell hashish, then I became a pious man.” His decision was the result of listening to the sermons of the Egyptian Anwar Shaaban in the mosque in Viale Jenner: a man with a large following, determined and charismatic, a reference point for Islamists in Milan. The city has always been central, now as in the past, not only because it is at the halfway point to northern Europe, in particular Belgium and France, but because it lies on the routes taken by fighters on their way to Syria and Libya.
