PRAGUE (Reuters) – The Prague High Court ruled on Friday that Russian citizen Yevgeniy Nikulin can be extradited to the United States where he is accused of hacking social networks including LinkedIn, news agency CTK reported. The ruling confirms an earlier court decision and follows another ruling which said Nikulin can be also extradited to Russia, which also filed for his extradition after his arrest in Prague on the U.S. charges in October last year. The decision on whether and where Nikulin will be extradited now lies with Justice Minister Robert Pelikan.
