Geneva, June 8 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 8th Jun, 2021 ) :Switzerland is considering a US extradition request for a Russian businessman detained in the wealthy Alpine nation and suspected of large-scale insider trading, the Swiss justice ministry said Tuesday.
On April 19, the US embassy in Bern requested his extradition, accusing him of "running insider trading in the tens of millions (of Dollars) with several accomplices", a justice ministry spokeswoman told AFP by email.
Klyushin has opposed the US extradition request, she said.
He reportedly heads several companies, including the M13 group which specialises in IT solutions for media monitoring and cyber-security consulting.
The Swiss judiciary must now decide whether or not to grant the US extradition request. Both sides will have the right to appeal against the outcome.
