NIKOSIA, August 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The Cyprus Paphos District Court postponed on Tuesday the hearings on extradition to the US of a Russian citizen Dmitry Zubakha, who is accused of hack attacks on several net companies. New hearings are due on September 11.
Russia’s embassy in the Republic of Cyprus told Itar-Tass that the court rejected Zubakha’s request for release on bail, explaining it by the fact since the detention no changes had ever happened.
Dmitry Zubakha, of 25, was arrested 40 days earlier in the airport of Paphos, where he arrived to spend holidays in Cyprus. His detention was made under an international order at request of the US. American authorities accuse the Muscovite of cyber attacks on net companies Amazon.com, Priceline.com and eBay, which caused major material losses. The US claims the man is involved in stealing of personal data of credit card owners in 2009.
The postponing of the hearings was caused by the fact that only earlier on Friday the American side produced materials containing proofs of necessary extradition to the US. The court and lawyers would require time to study the materials. The court will have third hearings: the first hearings were on July 19, where the court decided to take Zubakha in custody for 40 days so that the American side could provide convincing information proving the Russian citizen should be tried in the territory of the United States of America.
At the time of the arrest, Dmitry Zubakha worked for Ashmanov & Partners, a big Russian company working in the sphere of Internet marketing. In case of extradition and conviction he may be sentenced to a long prison term and a big fine.
