NICE (AFP) - Lawyers for the former mayor of Nice, Jacques Medecin, who was ordered to be extradited from Uruguay to face corruption charges, said they would sue French authorities, alleging that their extradition application was unlawful. Mr Medecin will bring the case against the Nice prosecutor who made the application, and the French ambassador to Uruguay, Pierre Charasse, who passed it on. A Uruguayan judge issued the extradition order yesterday.
