11:10 14/09/2011

NEW YORK, September 14 - RAPSI. Russian hacker Vladislav Khorokhorin, who has been charged with credit card fraud by American federal prosecutors, will file an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights against his extradition to the United States, Khorokhorin's attorney told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

"We will appeal to the European Court to challenge France's decision to extradite Khorokhorin to the United States," the attorney said. The documents required for the appeal will be submitted soon, he added.

Khorokhorin, who is also a citizen of Ukraine and Israel, is being prosecuted in two separate federal court cases in the United States. He was indicted for stealing $9.5 million from bank accounts across the world through cash machine withdrawals in Moscow, according to the US Department of Justice.

Khorokhorin was detained in August 2010 in France upon the order of Interpol.
