SANAA - Bailed US businessman Zack Shahin, who fled the United Arab Emirates for Yemen, may be deported to the United States as the UAE has not yet requested his extradition, Yemeni officials said on Thursday.

Yemeni authorities have contacted US embassy officials to discuss handing Shahin to the United States, a Yemeni security source and a government official both told Reuters.

"According to the law, there are two choices: To return him to the country where he came from, in this case the UAE, or the country of which he is a passport holder," the security source said, declining to be identified. There was no deadline for Shahin's deportation, he added.

But neither the Yemeni foreign ministry nor Interpol in Yemen had received any extradition requests for Shahin from the UAE, officials there told Reuters.
