Hungarian Man Suspected of Vienna Murder to be Extradited

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.08.28.
The Budapest Metropolitan Prosecutor’s Office, acting on a European arrest warrant the Austrian authorities issued in connection with a murder that allegedly took place in Vienna in May, has ordered the provisional extradition of a Hungarian man to Austria.
The office said in a statement that the extradition of a Hungarian citizen who is resident in Hungary can take place under the country’s laws if the Austrian authorities provide by Sept. 5 a guarantee of return if the person sentenced asks to serve their term in prison in Hungary.

The man is suspected of carrying out the killing on May 14 or 15. The Austrian authorities informed the Hungarian police on Aug. 22 that the 41-year-old suspect was thought to be hiding in Budapest. He was arrested on Aug. 24 in Kispest.
