The businessman Sebastian Ghita will be heard on May 19, in Belgrade, as a result of the extradition request submitted by the Romanian authorities, according to the Tanjug agency, who quoted an announcement made on Friday by the High Court of Belgrade.
The hearing of Gita, who will be brought from the Belgrade district prison, will be made by a preliminary chamber judge, under the Law on the International Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters.
Sebastian Ghita was identified and detained in Belgrade, on the night of April 13 to 14.
Ghita had a Slovene driving license and identity card, and he was accompanied by his brother when he was captured.
On April 27, JusMin Tudorel Toader announced that Romanian authorities sent all the documents for Sebastan Ghita’s extradition to Belgrade.
At Romania’s request, the High Court of Belgrade extended the 18-day term in which Sebastian Ghita’s extradition request had to be sent. The spokesman of the Court, Bojana Stankovic, stated for Tanjug that, in preliminary proceedings, the detention term may be extended up to 40 days. In Ghita’s case, right after he was detained, two court decisions have been filed: one of them referred to his detention for two months, and the other for his detention for 18 days.
