A Berlin court has ruled Denis Kaznacheev to be extradited to US

The long running saga of Denis Kaznacheev and his incarceration has taken a sad turn of events in the last few days. It has come to light an appellate court in Germany has ruled to extradite the Nervmusic boss to America on charges of money laundering. The decision of the 4th Criminal Senate of the Berlin Court of Appeal has been confirmed on one condition and that is that Denis should not be the subject of any other charges other than those that he has been extradited under.

This decision was made in the absence of Denis who was alleged to not have been advised of the meeting arrangements. This decision appears to have violated Art. 5 of the Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and will surely be a major part of the DJ’s defence. The mountainous charges that have been brought against Denis will see him be named as part of the ‘Russian cyber mafia’ that has seemingly laundered $310 million between 2010 to 2020 with Denis himself netting an alleged sum between $3 million to $15 million.

Further details have now emerged regarding how the crimes were committed and as a result of laundered proceeds from computer hacking and stolen credit cards Denis is alleged to processed payments via the Liberty Reserve crypto exchange. The damning revelations were linked to the DJ as a result of testimony from Seleznev who was sentenced to 27 years in prison in 2017 who is supposed to have worked together with Denis on the scam.

Obviously, Denis is vehemently refuting these claims and for anybody that knows Denis well will know that he lived a life far from the excessive wealth he is alleged to have been involved in. With his previous incarceration drawing support from the underground community fresh support is required to help Denis fight his next battle and to avoid extradition.
