PRAGUE, November 23. /TASS/. The Czech Republic has received requests for extradition of Russian national Yevgeni Nikulin, accused of cyberattacks, who was arrested in Prague, from both Russia and the US, Czech Justice Ministry Spokesperson Tereza Schejbalova told TASS on Wednesday. According to her, the two extradition requests arrived almost simultaneously.
"We have received the requests. Both states seek the extradition of Yevgeni Nikulin," Schejbalova noted. "The Justice Ministry will assess these documents. Today or tomorrow they will be forwarded to the Prague City Prosecutor’s Office."
The prosecutor’s office will review both requests and then submit them to Prague’s City Court which will make a decision on the Russian national’s extradition. It is possible that the country’s justice minister will participate in the process.
Yevgeni Nikulin was arrested in Prague on October 5. A Californian court had charged him with cyberattacks against US targets.
