Harju County Court today ruled to extradite Alexander Dmitriev, a banker who stands accused of embezzling millions in Russia.
Dmitriev is the former head of the Omsk branch of AK Bars Bank. He is wanted in Russia for the alleged embezzlement of 400 million rubles (9.8 million euros).
Authorities detained Dmitriev in Tallinn in January.
Harju County Court reviewed Russia's extradition request on January 22, but postponed a decision upon the defendant's request to obtain additional documents related to the case from Russia. In February, Tallinn District Court turned down Dmitriev's appeal of the arrest warrant.
