A lawyer for Viktor Kozeny says his client may fight extradition to the US, following his arrest by the FBI in the Bahamas. The controversial Czech businessman is accused of taking part in a scheme to fly millions of dollars into Azerbaijan to bribe officials there for control of the state oil company.
Mr Kozeny - nicknamed the Pirate of Prague - is also wanted in the Czech Republic, after he fled the country with millions obtained from small investors during the privatisation process of the 1990s.
