Lawyer: Russian Accused In Massive Bitcoin Theft Abruptly Extradited To France

A Russian man wanted by the United States for a massive bitcoin-theft scheme has been extradited from Greece to France, the latest development in a multinational legal fight that focused attention on cryptocurrency money laundering. In a post to Facebook on January 23, Aleksandr Vinnik’s lawyer asserted that his client had been kidnapped, and suggested he had been sent to France without her knowledge.
