Michel Arseneault's (RFI) summary
Will Patrice Talon, a Benin businessman who lives in Paris, be sent back to Cotonou?
A French court is currently considering an extraditiom request for Talon. Authorities in Benin want to question him in connection with an alleged plot to poison President Boni Yayi.
The story has generated heated debate in Cotonou -- especially after investigating judge Angelo Houssou decided that there wasn't enough evidence to press charges against Talon.
Houssou has now himself run into trouble with the authorities. He has been under de facto house arrest.
RFI's Michel Arseneault spoke to Nourou-Dine SAKA SALEY, a Benin lawyer who believes the root of Houssou's difficulties are political.
