MADRID (Sputnik) — Lisov was detained at the request of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in January 2017 in Barcelona. On July 20, he had the extradition hearing in Madrid, at which he pleaded not guilty. Lisov is suspected of developing a "banking Trojan" entitled NeverQuest, which provided fraudsters access to computers of other persons and financial institutions to steal banking data.
"[The Court] has made a decision to heed the extradition request of Russian national Stanislav Vitalievich Lisov to the United States," the National Court said in a press release.
Same day, the Russian embassy in Spain said that it was closely following the situation.
"On July 31, the Central Examining Court No. 3 of Madrid made a decision to heed the US request to extradite Russian national Lisov, accused of cyberfraud. The embassy maintains the contact with Lisov's lawyers, who are examining the court's decision in detail at the moment. According to their opinion, the rights of the Russian citizen were violated, which gives the defense grounds to appeal the court's decision around September in case it is approved by the National Court of Spain," the embassy said in comment.
The investigation of Lisov's case was launched in the United States in 2014. In August 2015, US court issued an arrest warrant, while an international arrest warrant was issued in early January this year. If convicted, Lisov may be sentenced to 35 years in prison.
