The weekly Respekt says that President Miloš Zeman has pushed for Russian alleged hacker Yevgeny Nikulin to be extradited to his native country. Monday's edition of Respekt said it had information that Mr. Zeman had twice met with the Czech minister of justice, Robert Pelikán, to lobby for Mr. Nikulin to be handed over to the authorities in Russia rather than to the US, where he is facing charges of hacking the computers of major internet companies including LinkedIn.
