Dmitry Firtash extradition from Austria to US halted for “immediate future”

20th Dec 2017

An Austrian court has halted the extradition of Dmitry Firtash from Austria to the US, while it hears an application to reconsider its original extradition order. Mr Firtash is a Ukrainian billionaire linked to President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and is wanted by the US on bribery charges relating to titanium deals in India.

His lawyer told a federal Court in Chicago that it was unlikely Firtash would be extradited “in the immediate future”, having previously expected him to be extradited before the end of 2017.
