Estonia will extradite three people accused of Internet fraud, hacking and money laundering to the United States, local media reported on Friday.
The Estonian government greenlighted on Thursday the extradition of Dmitri Jegorov, Timur Gerassimenko and Konstantin Poltev, after a money laundering case on the Estonian side concludes, according to the Estonian Public Broadcasting report.
The three people were among a group of seven people who allegedly infected with malware 4 million computers around the world from 2006 to 2011. Using the malware, the group were able to generate millions of U.S. dollars by re-routing infected computers to certain websites and advertisements.
The U.S. has demanded the four's extradition since 2012.
