Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Friday instructed the Population Authority to expel Eric Bellucci, the 30-year-old US resident who was arrested at Ben Gurion Airport after he attempted to leave Israel following allegations that he stabbed his parents to death, rather than waiting US extradition order.

Yishai has the authority to issue an expulsion order to all foreign citizens held in reasonable suspicion that they committed a criminal offense their native country, even if a extradition request has not been filed.

Consequently, Israel intends to begin deportation and extradition proceedings against Eric Bellucci.
