Re: Perplexed
@Dr.T: More to the point, in the US, it's a Constitutional right where criminal charges are concerned.

Re: Verizon / yahoo
@Dr.T: The purchase of Yahoo was more for Yahoo's content assets than for its systems or user base. I don't think VZ particularly cares that much otherwise.

Verizon / yahoo
Now that Verizon owns yahoo, do we think the security of their infrastructure and systems are any better?

Re: Perplexed
"especially if his assets are frozen" That would be very good, there has to be a precedence set for this case.

Re: Perplexed
" a speedy trial could well be to his benefit" Agree. Speedy trial will benefit everybody, including Yahoo.

Re: Perplexed
"expedite extradition to be tried in the US" I agree, this should be done quite easily for many countries but when it comes to Russia it may not be that easy.

Suspect ?
I did not know there was suspect on this issue, that is good, he can plead not guilty that will not change final outcome if he is at fault.

Re: Perplexed
@Ryan: I definitely see your point, but if he really is innocent and believes he will be exonerated, a speedy trial could well be to his benefit -- especially if his assets are frozen. There may be other factors at play, too. Who knows?

I find it quite odd that you would expedite extradition to be tried in the US, especially when you intended to plead innocent.
