The United States submitted a request to Namibia on Monday for the extradition of fugitive Comverse CEO Ya'akov (Kobi) Alexander. The request came four days before the official cutoff date for such an appeal. Namibia's justice minister was expected to convene an emergency discussion on the extradition request on Tuesday. Alexander, who was accused in a multimillion-dollar stock manipulating scheme, was released on bail earlier this month by a Namibian judge. The Namibian government said at the time that it opposed bail pending a formal extradition request from the US, according to Justice Ministry official Dennis Khama. Earlier, US Attorney Roslynn Mauskopf said that she would seek Alexander's swift extradition to face charges in federal court in Brooklyn.
