The country's top suspect, Ze'ev Rosenstein, was due to be extradited on Monday to the United States, where he will stand trial in a Florida district court in July on charges of importing to the US and distributing 1.45 million MDMA (ecstasy) pills. According to American law, he could be sentenced to up to 20 years in jail, though if he receives a jail sentence, he will serve it in Israel. Israeli law stipulates that the State cannot extradite an Israeli citizen and resident unless the country seeking the extradition allows the defendant to serve his jail sentence in Israel. Israel Radio reported that Rosenstein would be represented by a top US criminal defense lawyer, Florida-based Attorney Roy Black.
