Cyber-bully, Aydin C, may now be extradited to Canada for his role in a cyber-bullying case against a 15-year old Canadian girl, Amanda Todd, who took her own life. He will be facing trial charges on his involvement in the bullying that drove the girl to suicide.
He was sentenced to 11 years in prison in the Netherlands on charges of internet fraud and blackmail.
Even though the ruling was for his extradition, there are still many hurdles in place before justice can be served. There is no clear time frame when his extradition must occur and the Justice minister must personally approve his case before he is moved.
Amanda posted her story on YouTube in 2012, where she described the harassment she suffered after a man she met online threatened to publish a photo of her breasts on the internet. Her video was watched millions of times and sparked a global debate about cyber-bullying. She took her own life a few weeks later in her British Columbia home.
The Dutch suspect was convicted in the Netherlands in March of blackmailing dozens of young people around the world into performing sex acts in front of web cams. His victims were from countries as far away as Britain, Canada, Norway and the US. The cyber-bully was arrested in January 2014. He faces additional cyber-bullying charges in Canada related to making and distributing child pornography, extortion and harassment.
