The product was an enhanced night-vision goggles, a non-lethal, point of view, to interrupt the Laser in the jargon Blender, called for a target exposure pointer and a four-zinc-mouth adapter for firearms.
The man is resisting the extradition, among other things, with the Argument that he was a "political Persecution".
Already on the 28. October, decided by the appeals chamber of the Federal criminal court , Switzerland should not deliver the man to the United States. The same court rejected the BJ at 19. November to dismiss the Valais imprisoned man out of prison.
The BJ shows but adamant. It wants to deliver to the Chinese to the United States and is also due to the release immediately to the Federal court . The Federal court has on 20. November has, of the U.S. Department of justice, authorities Searched must provisionally remain in custody. The question of extradition has not been decided, the Lausanne-based court, however, still. Thus, the legal wrangling continues around the man.
no detention compensation
the appeals chamber of The Federal criminal court confirmed in its latest decision on the case of the Chinese his previous stance, according to which no dual criminality under Swiss and U.S. law exists. Since the delivery of the man "due to the lack of dual criminality is, according to the court, manifestly inadmissible, does not justify the detention pending extradition, and, therefore, to repeal" means in the sentence.
Only the lawyer required compensation, the court refused to. "Any compensation claims are a posteriori, i.e. after the final legal conclusion of the extradition proceedings to assess," writes the court.

In the future, a detailed justification would be welcome."
Several questions remain to be settled
