BRUSSELS — The Warsaw Court of Appeal adjourned a decision on the extradition of the main suspect in the Brussels mp3 murder on Tuesday.
The appeals court first wanted to study the Polish Supreme Court's interpretation of the application of the European arrest warrant on a minor.
A definitive decision must now be handed down within 30 days.
Warsaw Court approved on 31 May the extradition of the 17-year-old Polish suspect.
However, the extradition was granted on condition that Adam G. would serve out his sentence in Poland rather than Belgium.
G. subsequently appealed against the ruling.
The male youth has been in remand detention since his arrest in Poland on 27 April.
He is accused of stabbing teenager Joe Van Holsbeeck five times during a robbery at Brussels Central station in April.
Van Holsbeeck had refused to hand over his mp3 player to his assailants.
A 16-year-old Polish youth, the co-accused in the murder, was arrested on 24 April in Belgium.
