The High Court of Justice announced Sunday that it had rejected a petition by a man suspected of human trafficking in women to Israel as part of a prostitution ring to pressure the Ministry of Justice to fast-forward its efforts to extradite him from Turkey to Israel.

The Ministry of Justice is seeking to bring the suspect, Guy Hasid, to trial for the alleged crimes of human trafficking in women for the purpose of prostitution in Israel.

Hasid fled Israel before authorities could arrest him. But he was tracked down and arrested in Cyprus after an international arrest warrant was issued by INTERPOL.

From Cyprus he was transferred to Turkey, where he has been held in prison since July 16, 2011. It appears that Hasid would prefer prison conditions and even a trial in Israel than the prison conditions and treatment he is receiving in Turkey.
