Greece opens Russian cybercrime suspect’s extradition case

  • Russian cybercrime suspect Alexander Vinnik, who is wanted in the United States in a $4 billion bitcoin fraud case, denied the charges against him Friday during an appearance in a Greek court to fight an extradition request.
  • Vinnik, 37, was arrested while on vacation in Greece on July25 and detained pending the extradition hearing following a request from U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District of California.
  • A panel of judges is expected to examine that request next week, which Vinnik’s lawyer has said he will not challenge.
  • Speaking during the hearing in the northern city of Thessaloniki, Vinnik told a panel of judges that he did not run the digital currency exchange, and said he had not transferred bitcoins.
  • The prosecutor requested the American extradition request be accepted and said there were indications Vinnik was guilty.
