"Abu Salem has been declared a terrorist by a Portuguese high court and in about two months he will be extradited by that country," Advani said at the daylong BJP national council meet, which is being attended by the party's top leadership, including Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The high court in Portugal has permitted Salem's extradition. Conventionally, a country's apex court invariably goes by this verdict, he said addressing the 15,000 party workers packed into the Ambedkar football stadium in Delhi.
