The hearing on the case of Russian Evgeny Nikulin, who was extradited to the United States from the Czech Republic on charges of cybercrime, was postponed to March 9, 2020, although it was originally supposed to take place at the beginning of the year. This is stated in the schedule of the court of the Northern District of California in San Francisco.



The jury will be elected on the same day. Moreover, the entire consideration of the case will take 11 days. The last meeting will be held on March 20. Prior to the trial, Nikulin will be detained. At the same time, it is already known that state defenders will represent the interests of the Russian, TASS reports.

The site kp.ru wrote that the private lawyer of the "hacker" Arkady Bukh was against such a development. The defender is confident that in this way the United States simply wants to expedite the conviction.

Recall that Nikulin was detained in Prague in 2016 at the request of Washington, who accuses him of cyber attacks and theft of personal data from LinkedIn social network servers. Soon after the arrest, the Russians were sent for compulsory treatment to the Bognitsa psychiatric clinic, where strong drugs were used.

The accused’s lawyer repeatedly pointed out his health problems, but the psychologist recognized Nikulin as sane. In 2018, he was extradited to the United States.
