LONDON, October 15 - RAPSI. The court will hear the case on the extradition of the son of the former Kyrgyz president Maxim Bakiyev on December 7, the Westminster Magistrates Court told RIA Novosti on Monday.

On Friday, media reported that Bakiyev had been arrested in London upon the U.S. government's request. The UK Embassy in Kyrgyzstan confirmed his arrest on Saturday.

The arrest was necessitated by the U.S. government's request for his extradition based on an extradition treaty with the UK. According to the U.S. authorities, Bakiyev has been accused of conspiracy to commit fraud involving securities and obstructing the administration of justice.

Earlier, the Kyrgyz presidential press service said the UK is contemplating Bakiyev's extradition to the United States as opposed to Kyrgyzstan, as the latter does not have an extradition treaty with the country.

The court has confirmed that Bakiyev was detained. He stood a trial and was released on bail until December 7.
