Greece’s Supreme Court, Areios Pagos, upheld the verdict of Thessaloniki’s Court later this year that Alexander Vinnik, a 39-year old Russian national who is also known as “Mr. Bitcoin,” can be extradited to face a trial in Russia.
Mr Bitcoin is being prosecuted by Russia for the crime of digital fraud.
Mr Vinnik said that he wants to be extradited to Russia and he will tell everything he has to say in front of the Russian judges.
Alexander Vinnik is also prosecuted by the United States of America and France.
Greece’s Supreme Court has already given permission for the extradition of Mr Bitcoin to the USA and is about to decide about France’s request.
The Greek Minister will be the one to decide where Alexander Vinnik will be extradited to.
