Serbia’s High Court Special Department for Organised Crime said on Tuesday it decided on October 20 to extradite a person identified by AS initials to the US to face charges of an Internet fraud by the County Court in Texas.
The Court added A.S. said he wanted to be extradited by a simplified procedure.
In July, the Belgrade Higher Court held a hearing of IT experts from Serbia’s southern city of Nis wanted by the US on Internet fraud suspicion, a conspiracy of money laundering and creation of false investment funds.
Their actions reportedly caused some 70 million Dollars damages to the American investors.
The suspects hold either Serbia’s or dual citizenships.
The Special Department said on Tuesday that in the case of A.S., a Serbia’s citizen, there were no obstacles to the extradition in line with the Serbia – US Agreement on Extradition and the Law on International Legal Assistance in criminal issues.
The Department did not mention what would happen with other suspects wanted by the US.
The procedure against A.S. will be held within the criminal case the US vs K.K. and others for conspiracy to commit fraud which includes electronic communication.
