Slovenia will not extradite a Romanian hacker who broke into the computer systems of U.S. government agencies, because he has already been tried and sentenced in Romania, the national news agency STA reported on Tuesday. Victor Faur was seized in Slovenia last October on an international arrest warrant issued by the United States, STA said. Faur, whose online alias was SirVic, had been indicted in the United States in 2006 on conspiracy and computer intrusion charges. A court in Murska Sobota, in northeast Slovenia, said on Tuesday Faur had been found guilty in Romania, given a suspended prison term and ordered to pay $240,000 in damages, STA said.
