Czech high court says alleged Russian hacker can be extradited to United States
Jan Lopatka reports:
The Prague High Court ruled on Friday that Russian citizen Yevgeniy Nikulin can be extradited to the United States where he is accused of hacking social networks including LinkedIn, a court spokeswoman said.
Czech police arrested Yevgeniy Nikulin in Prague in October 2016 in cooperation with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Russia also accuses him of a small cyber theft and both countries have requested his extradition, leaving him in a tug-of-war between Washington and Moscow.
Friday’s decision does not end that competition.
