LONDON, October 15 (RIA Novosti)
The extradition hearing for Maxim Bakiyev, son of Kyrgyzstan's ex-president Kurmanbek Bakiyev, has been set for December 7, Westminster Magistrates Court told RIA Novosti.
He was arrested on Friday following a US extradition request relating to charges of conspiracy to defraud and pervert the course of justice in the United States.
Maxim Bakiyev fled to the UK after his father was ousted in 2010, and was detained briefly after landing. He then applied for asylum, and was allowed to stay in the country while his asylum bid was considered.
Interpol listed him as "wanted" by Kyrgyzstan in connection with fraud involving the transfer of $35 million out of the Kyrgyzstan Development Fund into private bank accounts.
He was arrested in London on Friday after voluntarily appearing at a police station.

If attempts to drag Russia into a direct military conflict in Ukraine are successful, it would be a catastrophe for Russia comparable to the 1979-1989 Afghan war. There is no direct evidence that the US is trying to bring about a second Afghan war, but indirect evidence abounds.
