HELSINKI, October 20. /TASS/. Russian national Maxim Senakh accused of computer fraud detained by Finnish police may face more than 100 years imprisonment if extradited to the US, the detainee’s lawyer Igor Khitrukhin told TASS on Tuesday.
"In the US he may face some 100 years in prison, but the American side gave no evidences of his guilt," Khitrukhin said, adding that the Senakh’s case will be sent to the Russian Supreme Court this week in order to appeal the possible extradition.
Earlier in September, the Finnish authorities confirmed the detention of Russian citizen at the US request. In Minnesota, Senakh was charged with multiple computer fraud. According to the Finnish Justice Ministry, Senakh is accused of infecting computer servers with malware, resulting in criminal gains.
The Russian citizen was detained at the Russia-Finland border in early August at the US authorities' request. The American side had 45 days from the start of Senakh's detention to submit an official extradition request. Russian national may be freed if the US had not made the request.
