Greece Violates Treaty With Russia by Extraditing Vinnik to US - Civic Chamber

Alexander Vinnik Greek court rules for extradition of Russian hacker Vinnik to USA
Carol Daniels | 05 October, 2017, 00:52

The Thessaloniki Council of Judges ruled to satisfy the USA request for the extradition of Russian citizen Alexander Vinnik on 4 October, RIA Novosti reported.

Since his arrest, the Kremlin has requested that he be sent back to Moscow, as it has with a number of other alleged Russian hackers wanted by the United States who have been arrested in different countries around the world this year. Authorities suspect he was ringleader and responsible for alleged laundering activity since 2011.

Russian Federation is also seeking Vinnik's extradition on separate fraud charges. In the U.S., Vinnik could face up to 55 years in prison.

Mr. Levashov is expected to appeal the ruling, Reuters reported, and Mr. Vinnik's attorneys have already filed a formal challenge with Greek's highest court, the AP report said.

Vinnik, a 37-year-old Russian national, has been indicted by a USA grand jury on 21 counts related to financial crimes.

Longtime NHL Broadcaster Dave Strader Passes at 62
In addition to his work in hockey, Strader also worked for the WNBA, the NBA D-League, college basketball and the Olympics. He was limited to calling five games with the Dallas Stars , the organization Strader was with the last two seasons.

Vinnik, who managed BTC-e, an exchange he operated for the Bitcoin crypto-currency, was indicted by a USA court in late July on 21 charges ranging from identity theft and facilitating drug trafficking, to money laundering. Instead, Vinnik claims he was simply a technical consultant and BTC-e was one of his clients.

In the event that the Supreme Court upholds the decision, Greece's justice minister will have the final say over whether Vinnik's extradition to the United States can go ahead, or whether his transfer to America needs to be blocked in favour of Russia's request.

A hearing date for the Russian extradition request on lesser fraud charges has not yet been set.

"We hope and expect a better outcome", Alexandros Lykourezos, the lawyer leading Vinnik's defence, told reporters.
