NEW YORK (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th September, 2019) US authorities have granted imprisoned Russian citizen Viktor Bout's family two additional days for visiting him at a Federal distension facility, his spouse Alla Bout told reporters on Tuesday.
Alla Bout and her daughter arrived in the United States on Monday and plan to stay in the country for six weeks.
Bout is serving a 25-year sentence in US prison after being arrested in Bangkok in 2008 in a joint operation between Thai and US authorities on charges of conspiring to kill American nationals by allegedly agreeing to supply Colombian rebels with weapons. In 2010, Bout was extradited to the United States, where he was imprisoned.
