Switzerland refused to extradite a Russian businessman arrested at the request of the United States to Russia. The Americans accuse him of hacking into the systems of IBM, Tesla and other American multinational companies.
Switzerland responded with a refusal to Russia’s request for the extradition of Russian businessman Vladislav Klyushin, who was arrested in March at the request of the United States. This was announced by Inggrid Raiser, an official representative of the Swiss Federal Office of Justice.
The entrepreneur has been in a Swiss prison since the end of March this year. In April, Russia sent a request for the extradition of the Russian citizen. This request was considered in Switzerland right up to August 12 and was eventually refused.
The facts listed in this request are not punishable under Swiss law,
– TASS quotes the explanation of the representative of the Swiss department.
At the same time, Switzerland without question arrested a Russian citizen at the request of the United States. Vladislav Klyushin’s lawyer claims that the Americans are persecuting his ward for political reasons. The fact is that he runs an IT company that developed software for the state. It is noted that the United States set a trap for Klyushin in Switzerland in order to gain access to strategic secrets.
In turn, the United States accuses Klyushin of hacking against IBM, Tesla and other American multinational companies. He is said to have stolen over $ 10 million.
