Conditions in the Samos Hotspot “Out of Control,” Says Greek National Commission for Human Rights

January 23, 2020

AYHENS – Greece’s highest administrative court approved on Thursday the extradition to France of Russian national Aleksandr Vinnik (‘Mr. Bitcoin’) on money laundering charges.

The Council of State turned down Vinnik’s appeal against a decision by Justice Minister Konstantinos Tsiaras, who must sign off on extradition court cases.

Vinnik is sought by France, the United States and Russia on international arrest warrants for allegedly setting up and using a bitcoin platform for laundering 4 billion US dollars. Tsiaras had decided that Vinnik should be extradited first to France, then to the US and Russia, in order of priority. The defendant has requested he be extradited to Russia.
