Hungarian Lawyer with Alleged 'Ndrangheta Links Extradited to Italy
The municipal court of Budapest on Thursday ruled to extradite a local lawyer, a woman of Hungarian nationality and wanted by the Italian authorities for organised crimes including fraud and money laundering committed in association with the ‘Ndrangheta, the Hungarian court said in a statement.

According to the statement, the court of Catanzaro had issued a European warrant for the lawyer, in connection with 9 counts of criminal activities punishable by a combined 20 years imprisonment.

The suspect, arrested in January, is believed to have formally operated a law office in Budapest, and managed companies in Hungary, which were in fact under control by the leader of the gang and which were used as a cover for illegal property transfers and money laundering, the statement said.
