A hacker who's suspected of stealing hundreds of thousands of euros
from online bank accounts has been extradited from Argentina to Spain.
Jos=E9 Manuel Garc=EDa Rodr=EDguez, 24, dubbed (rather uncharitably) by the
Argentinians as "the fat Spaniard", faces up to 40 years imprisonment
if convicted of various cybercrime offences.
Garc=EDa Rodr=EDguez (whose online handle is Tasmania) fled his native
Spain two years ago. Nine international arrest warrants were issued
against him before he was eventually tracked down and arrested in
Carcara=F1=E1, Argentina in July 2005. =AE
