The Prague City Court has approved a 10-year prison sentence that a Swedish court handed down in 2002 to a 30-year old Czech for drug trafficking. The ruling means the man, Ladislav Zerovnicky, could be extradited and serve his sentence in the Czech Republic. However, Mr Zerovnicky says he would like to stay in the Swedish prison. His defence counsel argues that Mr Zerovnicky is studying English and information technology in the Swedish prison and would like to complete his studies. Swedish police detained Mr Zerovnicky in July 2001 after customs officers found almost 17 kilos of heroin in his car.
