See following case details:

The case on infamous internet fraudsters, Kevin Amuche, 32 and Henrik Bialek, has officially been tried and closed in Basel Stadt, Switzerland after numerous rejected extradition appeals. The Nigerian and Swiss nationals accordingly, were arrested at the Euro Airport, Basel while trying to flee Switzerland federal authorities in an unrelated fraud case.

The case was closed based upon the following terms; I. Court-ordered restitution -select offshore Swiss bank accounts

shall be converted into restitution funds to be remitted to eligible affected victims, II. Time served plus 257 months, court orders reveal.

The aforementioned defendants and their group of co-offenders used over 450 aliases to mask their original identities, which is why you may not be familiar with the real names of the defendants. 1 To that regard, if you do not recollect an incident, you were certainly a victim of identity theft. However, records suggest that you have been a victim because your contact details and personal information were found on several computer devices belonging to the defendants, alongside corresponding expenses, services and property acquired using your credentials. Following court orders, this

makes you eligible for restitution in the amount of £521,911.00 for damages caused by his crimes.

During investigation, authorities revealed that the operated on an international scale victimizing thousands of individuals of over 18 nationalities and hid a majority of their acquisitions in offshore Swiss bank accounts and properties. Based on that revelation, the Switzerland government concluded that the extradition proceedings would

be impossible and that litigation proceedings had to be completed with no open dissemination to avoid jurisdiction issues, as well as maintain unitary judgment and integrity in international relations. Because this was a private trial,

all victims (including you) were represented by a local court-appointed public representative.
