Decision of the Swiss Supreme Court in Adamov Case

The United States is disappointed by the Swiss Supreme Court decision to extradite Mr. Evegeny Adamov to Russia. Mr. Adamov has been indicted in the United States for the diversion for his own personal use of U.S. taxpayer funds intended to help the Russian government improve the safety of its nuclear energy facilities. In issuing this judgment, the court has overruled the earlier decision of the Swiss Federal Council to extradite Mr. Adamov to the United States. We look to the Government of Russia to ensure that justice is done in this case.
