Pierre Bordry told The Associated Press that French judge Thomas Cassuto is seeking to question Landis about computer hacking dating back to September 2006 at the Chatenay-Malabry lab.

Months earlier, the laboratory near Paris had uncovered abnormally elevated testosterone levels in Landis' samples collected in the run-up to his 2006 Tour de France victory.

The American cyclist unsuccessfully challenged the drug test results before an arbitration hearing in California - claiming that computer files were mishandled and erased.

Well ,I am not familiar with international law for hacking but since it seeminly did not interupt any public service,cause an economic loss and on the surface doesn't seem to consitute and invasion of privacy I doubt that the law provides for extradition within the scope of the alleged offense.
This is of course just my opinion.

It's damned odd that it took nearly 4 years for law enforcement to get around to investigating the alleged hacking. Damned odd. That in itself should force some questions to be asked and answered.

We're talking about AFLD here. Since when has anything other than Landis's positive A sample been done quickly? (Remember, rumours about that positive were going through the peloton 2 days after they were taken, before the Tour finshed) It takes them about 6 months to get a simple doping case setup, I'm surprised these charges were brought about before 2020.

The hacker was caught for an other hacking, much more bigger that Landis' case, so Justice went after the biggest fishes then with Landis.
Landis was already sumoned last year, but he didn't responded so now Justice take the following step.
To get enough clues and evidences time is needed... but sure to satisfy you, they should have put Landis in jail directly at the end of the 17th stage.

Uh-huh. No matter how cut it taking 4 years on these charges is either foot dragging or bungling.

Or maybe you just don't have a clue what you are talking about. The hacker was caught last year for hacking Greenpeace's computers. He gave information that he had been hired by Dr. Arnie Baker to hack into the LNDD's computers. Late last year Baker and Landis were subpoened for questioning. They refused to comply. Now arrest warrants have been issued so they can be questioned.

Oh, a clue! Thanks for bringing one by! As always, your input is massively valued. How silly of me to not have realized you'd have the indisputable answer.
