PRAGUE, October 21. /TASS/. The Russian hacker suspected of cyberattacks against US targets, who was arrested in the Czech Republic, will remain in custody until his possible extradition to the US is reviewed, Czech Justice Ministry Spokesperson Tereza Schejbalova told TASS on Friday.
"He is in custody at the moment awaiting a decision on his possible extradition (to the US)," the spokesperson stated. "He was arrested on October 5 and will remain in custody until the question on his extradition is solved."
"As soon as we receive the request for extradition, which is expected to be before December 4, we will submit it to the prosecutor’s office, after that the Prague City court will review the case," Schejbalova explained.
The final decision on the Russian national’s future may be taken by the Minister of Justice, the spokesperson added. "At the end (of extradition process) the minister may step in but it is not necessary," she elaborated.
"In any case, it will take several months to solve this question," she stressed.
