Austrian court clears way for U.S. extradition of Ukrainian tycoon Firtash

VIENNA – Austria’s Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a decision granting a request by the United States to extradite Ukrainian tycoon Dmytro Firtash, paving the way for him to face trial there over bribery allegations.

A U.S. grand jury indicted Firtash in 2013, along with a member of India’s parliament and four others, on suspicion of bribing Indian government officials to gain access to minerals used to make titanium-based products. Firtash denies wrongdoing.
