Austrian justice minister Clemens Jabloner gave permission to extradite the Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash. This was reported in the press service of the Austrian Ministry of Justice.
The Minister decided to do so after consulting the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Now the Vienna Higher Provincial Court is involved in extradition arrest and further deportation of the Ukrainian to the United States.
Attorneys of the oligarch filed a petition for the restoration of the trial of the extradition case. Until the court decides on this petition, Firtash will remain in Austria.
