Hungary to Extradite US Man Wanted for Child Sexual Abuse


A Budapest court on Friday ruled that an American national can be extradited to face charges of child sexual abuse.

The Budapest Municipal Court said in a statement that it has ordered the man’s temporary detention, agreeing to a request by the US authorities. The man wanted for child sexual abuse and other crimes faces life sentences on three counts and a prison term of 2 years and 10 months on one count of the charges against him, the statement said. At his court hearing, the man agreed to his extradition under the so-called Rule of Speciality, which says that an individual can only be tried for offences in connection with which they were extradited. The documents of the case will now be referred to the justice minister, the statement said.
