Tuesday, 28 June 2016 09:21 AM

AMSTERDAM (AP) — An Amsterdam court has approved the extradition of a Dutch man to Canada, where authorities suspect him of a string of crimes against Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old girl who drew global attention to cyberbullying when she posted a YouTube video recounting her ordeal. She later took her own life.

Following Tuesday's decision, the Dutch Justice Minister now has to sign off on the extradition of the suspect, identified in court papers only as Aydin C. However he will not be sent to Canada until after his Dutch trial on charges of sexual assault and extortion of 39 other victims is completed.

In Canada he faces five counts including extortion, possession of child pornography and attempting to lure a child online.
